Green Party Greetings on Islamic New Year

Green Party of Canada sends greetings for Al-Hijra, the Islamic New Year, this year
falling near or on November 26th.  This important day is celebrated on the
first day of the month of Muharram, to commemorate the month in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina. "The Islamic New Year is a time for
personal reflection, a time to think about our own personal journeys.
 The journey undertaken by the Prophet Muhammad symbolizes for us
the movement from oppression to freedom.  This message is still very relevant
for the world today, as we collectively struggle for physical and
spiritual wellness.  I wish all Islamic Canadians peace
and prosperity on the
occasion of the Hijra New Year," said Green Leader

Elizabeth May.
