A row has broken out between Labour and Plaid Cymru over a party organised for Muslims in Cardiff.

First Minister Rhodri Morgan and Welsh Secretary Peter Hain were among the senior Labour figures at the event to mark Eid el-Fitr, the end of Ramadan.
But Plaid claimed Sunday's party was "cynical and insensitive," as it took place four weeks after the actual Eid.
Labour said the date was arranged with the Muslim community, and accused Plaid of making "cheap political points."
Labour said about 500 Muslims attended the event at the Coal Exchange in Cardiff.
Around 300 people attended a similar event, organised by the party, last year.
Labour said Mr Morgan and Mr Hain would "pledge to continue their dialogue with the Muslim community in Wales" and that the party would "continue to deliver social justice for Welsh Muslims".
Labour also released a list of its "achievements on behalf of Muslims," including setting up an inter-faith council in Wales, and safeguarding halal methods of food production.

Mr Morgan said: "Labour is proud to be the party that is pioneering a major annual event for Muslims, continuing a healthy dialogue within the Welsh Labour family."
But Plaid claimed it was "an attempt to gain votes for the Labour Party," and was held "four weeks after Muslims celebrated the end of Ramadan at the start of November".
Plaid Cardiff councillor Mohammed Sarul Islam, said Muslims in Cardiff were "furious," and called the party "cynical and insensitive".
Series of celebrations
Mr Islam said: "As a Muslim, I ask quite simply, what has New Labour done for Muslims who live in Wales?"
He said 100,000 civilians had been killed in Iraq, and locally accused Labour councillors of having voted against Plaid Cymru proposals "to provide halal meals for Muslim children in Cardiff as of right."
Plaid Cymru AM Leanne Wood said it was an "appalling gaffe," and called on Mr Morgan to apologise.
A Welsh Labour spokeswoman said: "It's really sad that on this day which is about partnership and building bridges that Plaid Cymru try to score cheap political points."
"It was arranged with the Muslim community as part of a series of celebrations as a date which suited everybody. As with Christmas parties, Eid parties happen over a period for maximum enjoyment."
Mohammed Javed, chairman of the Muslim Society for Wales said: "Welsh Muslims are very happy here today. Labour is the only party to hold an event like this - last year was a success, and this year is even better.
"This is about recognition of our multicultural society and respect for different people's way of life as we celebrate together. These celebrations are arranged across a range of suitable dates after Eid."
