Green Party Statement for Ramadan 2021

OTTAWA  – The Green Party of Canada extends warm wishes to Muslims in Canada, and around the world, celebrating the festival of Eid ul Fitr, marking the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan. During Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn until dusk as one of the five pillars, or duties, of Islam. It is a time for self reflection and consideration for those less fortunate.

“Once again the holy month of Ramadan will take place under the constraints of pandemic restrictions,” said Green Party Leader Annamie Paul. “Despite these challenges, I hope that families, friends and communities will find safe ways to join together for the pre-dawn meal of suhar, and the breaking fast dinner, iftar after sundown.

“On behalf of the Green Party of Canada, I wish all Muslims Ramadan Mubarak!”
