Statement on Ramadan

Statement from Opposition Leader Luke Foley MP and Shadow Minister for Multiculturalism Sophie Cotsis MLC

On behalf of NSW Labor, we extend our deepest respect and best wishes to the Muslim community of NSW during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is a special time in the Muslim calendar, a period of fasting, prayer and contemplation, culminating in the Festival of Eid.

Australia is the home of Muslims from the Middle East, Africa and Asia and Ramadan provides the opportunity for families and friends to gather together and share the key tenets of your faith – love, charity and compassion.

Here in multicultural Australia we all live in peace and freedom, regardless of our background.

The Muslim community is a vital part of this State's fabric and your contribution is cherished. 

All Australians rejoice and celebrate the Festival of Eid with you.

Ramadan Mubarak.
