Ramadan Mubarak!

Jagmeet Singh, Leader of Canada’s NDP, issued the following statement:

Today, Muslims in Canada and around the world are marking the start of the holy month of Ramadan.

As they begin a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset, Muslims are also entering a time of spiritual renewal, selfless service, and prayer.

Over the next few weeks, as families across Canada come together in the evenings for iftar, the breaking of the fast, they will also be reconnecting with each other and strengthening their communities by sharing the gifts of self-reflection that Ramadan offers them.

On behalf of all New Democrats, I wish all those in Canada observing Ramadan a peaceful month with family, friends, and love ones. And may we all be inspired by this time to discover new ways to improve our communities and the lives of those around us.

Ramadan Mubarak!
