THE HON JOHN AJAKA MLC Minister for Multiculturalism Message for Ramadan 2015


It is my great pleasure as Minister for Multiculturalism to greet members of the Islamic faith as they enter the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is not only a month of sacrifice – it is also about spiritual renewal, social responsibility, thoughtful reflection and good deeds. Its focus on helping people who are less fortunate resonates with all Australians.With more than 200,000 people of the Islamic faith in NSW, our residents reflect the diversity of Muslims across the world.

Whether from the Middle East, Europe, Africa, India, China or Southeast Asia, Australian Muslims have contributed greatly to our society through volunteering and advocacy for community harmony.

I am proud that in NSW cultural and religious diversity is a unifying feature of our society, and I wish everyone of the Islamic faith peace and harmony throughout Ramadan and beyond.

Ramadan Mubarak.
