Message from Michelle Rowland

P11Rowlanngd_Michelle_140321-001It gives me great pleasure to send my best wishes to everyone attending the Multicultural Eid Festival and Fair.
As Ramadan comes to an end, the Multicultural Eid Festival and Fair brings the community together to celebrate and honour the blessings of a renewed faith through acts of charity and kindness.
In celebrating this auspicious event we also acknowledge the outstanding contribution of the Australian Muslim community.
As with all our national citizenry, the Australian Muslim community is one of extraordinary vitality and diversity, with ancestries that stretch back generations, with roots stemming from every country on earth; and with a history that forms an integral part of our national narrative.
It is this diversity that enriches our multiculturalism and it is this diversity which we celebrate today.
May the new moon usher in a spirit of harmony, respect and cooperation which serves to lift up the values we all cherish as a society.
Eid Mubarak.
