CTIP wishes Ramadan greetings to Muslim Canadians

Canada Talks Israel Palestine is a secular organization. Our members include Jews, Christians, Muslims, other faiths and even non-believers.

For the next month, Muslims in Canada and elsewhere will be fasting from daybreak to sunset (especially difficult in the Canadian summer with its long days and short nights.)

We extend our Ramadan greetings to our Muslim Canadian members, to other Muslims across Canada (hoping they will become CTIP members some day) and to Muslims around the world.

CTIP is pleased to note that a number of Canadian politicians have issued similar statements, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who posted a short video Ramadan greeting.

To all our Muslim friends we say “Ramadan Mubarak” (translated, “Blessed Ramadan”).
