It gives me great pleasure to offer the Muslim community my warmest greetings for Ramadan and Eid celebrations.
I understand the month of Ramadan is a time for reflection and purity of thought and action, while Eid symbolises, pity, patience and godliness. Socially Ramadan and Eid reminds us of the noble human feeling to share festivities with the poor, underprivileged and neglected from all faiths and non-faiths.
Ramadan and Eid celebrations together are a time to realise the concept of inter-faith harmony across communities and a commitment to build a cohesive and peaceful borough and world for all.
I hope the month of Ramadan and Eid celebrations will be a joyful occasion for all.
Happy Eid and Eid Mubark
