New Democrats wish you Ramadan kareem!

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

“Today, Muslims in Canada and around the world prepare to welcome the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.

This month of fasting from sunrise to sunset is also a time for spiritual renewal, generosity, kindness, and prayer.

This is a time for families, neighbours and communities across Canada to gather for iftar, the breaking of the fast, and reconnect with each other. For Muslims, Ramadan is the month of conviviality and sharing.

On behalf of all New Democrats, I wish all Muslim Canadians a peaceful month with family, friends and loved ones. May this Ramadan inspire us all to build a better country and world that is more just and compassionate.

Ramadan kareem!”
