Italian school’s Eid Al-Fitr closure draws ire of right-wing politicians

London: Senior Italian politicians have condemned a school in the north of the country for planning to close to mark the end of Ramadan.

Iqbal Masih school in Pioltello, near Milan, has a student body that is 40 percent Muslim and, anticipating that many would not turn up on April 10, which marks Eid Al-Fitr, announced it would not open that day.

This has prompted criticism from numerous right wing politicians in Italy, including senior figures in the government of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
