Obama sends Ramadan greetings to Muslims
Catholic World News - August 02, 2011
President Barack Obama has sent a message to all American Muslims at the start of Ramadan, “a festive time that is anticipated for months by Muslims everwhere.”
In his message, President Obama suggests that the fasting of Ramadan should be accompanied by “reaching out to those less fortunate,” and suggests aid to the millions of people facing starvation in the Horn of Africa.
The President announced plans to host an iftar dinner—the traditional meal ending the fast at sundown during Ramadan—in the White House.
