MESSAGE - EID AL-FITR - 6 JULY 2016

It gives us great pleasure to send our warmest wishes to Australia’s Islamic community on the auspicious occasion of Eid al-Fitr. 

As Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan, the Labor Party praises the outstanding contribution of Australian’s proud Islamic community.

Eid al-Fitr is a time to reflect on the month passed and look ahead with hope and goodwill to the future.

Let us also use this joyous time to celebrate the benefits of Australia’s rich diversity.

Australia’s multiculturalism is something that we should all be proud of and we take this opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding work of Australia’s Islamic community.

Labor also recognises the social and economic contribution of people from all faiths and backgrounds to Australia’s success as a multicultural nation.

As the new moon rises, let us all hope it brings with it a spirit of compassion, harmony and respect.

Eid Mubarak!
