Press Release 2017 - Ramadan

                   Malcolm Turnbull MP, Prime Minister of Australia 
                                                 Ramadan Message

27 May 2017 

Our best wishes go to the many Muslims in Australia and around the world who are observing the Ramadan month of fasting.

Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar, encourages Muslims to refocus their minds on faith and redirect their hearts to charity, so that they can understand the lives and experience of those who are less fortunate than they are.

Australia is the most successful multicultural society in the world. And the key to our success is mutual respect; for each other and for our democratic way of life under the rule of law.

From our family to yours,

Ramadan Mubarak

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP

Prime Minister of Australia
