A group of Muslim youth from the Nusrat Djahan mosque in Hvidovre (Copenhagen) volunteered on New Year's Day to help clean up the night's celebrations in the city's central square.
"Our religion teachers us that we should love our country. And if we love our country, we should keep it clean," says Muhammad Zakaria Khan, chairman of the mosque.
"Additionally, cleanliness if part of our faith. Various texts say that half of our faith is cleanliness. Therefore I sent 35 members of our community to the city to clean up," he says.
