This young British Muslim man is giving out presents to homeless people this Christmas

By Evan Bartlett

“I think we need to do a lot more to spread equality,” YouTuber Nubaid Haroon explains at the beginning of his Christmas video.

While not celebrating the festival himself, the young British Muslim explains that at with everyone in the Christmas spirit, it’s “the thought that counts”.

“Sometimes we forget that some people aren’t as fortunate to spend Christmas with the people they love.”

In a year in which religious tensions have been as fraught as any in a generation, now is perhaps the perfect time to remind everyone that people of true faith are generous, caring and try to look out for those less fortunate than themselves.

As such, Nubaid took to the streets of London to hand out cards and presents to those who have fallen on tough times.

“Today I just want to go out and put a smile on someone’s face. After all it is Christmas..”
