MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE
INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY


Ramadan Message

by Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP

03 July 2014.

  

At the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, on behalf of my family and the Party I lead, the Inkatha Freedom Party, I would like to wish all members of the Muslim community here in South Africa and abroad, a very blessed month.

 

We recognise that Ramadan is a significant time for Muslims in South Africa.

 

We know that during this time, Muslims are committed to periods of prayer, fasting and acts of kindness. It is a time for reflection and sharing with those less fortunate.

 

It is against this background that it is our hope that this holy month brings with it an abundance of peace and spiritual development to all the followers of Islam. 

 

And in the spirit of sharing and a commitment to a more just society, it is our wish that during this month, Muslims on the African continent will keep our brothers and sisters in conflict-ridden States on our continent in their thoughts and prayers.

 

The IFP extends its best wishes to our Muslim community for Ramadan Mubarak and a joyous Eid-ul-fitr with friends and family. We wish all families marking Ramadan over the coming weeks a peaceful time. 

 

PRINCE MANGOSUTHU BUTHELEZI MP

PRESIDENT OF THE INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY
