We treasure diversity and social cohesion: PM

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says religious freedom is a cornerstone of our multi-cultural, multi-religious, multi-lingual nation and we treasure our diversity and social cohesion in Fiji.

While sharing warm Eid greetings with the Muslim community in Fiji and all over the world as the sacred month of Ramadan ends, Rabuka said we as a nation, must also take time to reflect of the true meaning Eid-Ul-Fitr.

With the sighting of the new moon, Eid Ul- Fitr marks the end of the sacred month of Ramadan also known as the “feast of breaking fast.”

The month of Ramadan, in the Islamic Calendar, is observed with fasting practiced daily from dawn to sunset.

“It is a time of reflection, self-improvement and heightened devotion and worship.”

“It is time that we stand united and come together as one people in supporting one another as we rebuild our nation.”

He said a fair share of families in our communities are facing hardship due to recent flooding, or the loss of livelihoods and it is our collective responsibility to give a helping hand in supporting one another during trying times.

“We must continue to have faith in each other and reflect and practice the true purpose of Eid-Ul-Fitr where the interest of our most vulnerable families and communities must be paramount.”

Rabuka added that Fiji citizens must be compassionate and caring for one another.
