COLOMBO (News 1st): President Goatabaya Rajapaksa In his Ramadan message said that people should never allow any harm to the Islamic brotherhood due to acts of a small number of extremists.
President Rajapaksa’s Ramadan message said that the true Islamic devotees believe that extremist beliefs are against the core values of Islam.
“Hence, I believe that we should strongly commit to following the teachings of the Holy Quran while eliminating the mistrust and suspicion during this period of Ramazan,” President Rajapaksa said.
The Islamic community is celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr or Ramadan on Sunday (May 24).
The Colombo Grand Mosque on Saturday night announced that a new moon was sighted and hence Sri Lankan Muslims will mark Eid-ul-Fitr on Sunday.
Issuing his greetings for Eid-ul-Fitr, President Rajapaksa also said that fasting during the month of Ramazan better known as one of Five Pillars of Islam conveys the message of the importance of adhering to an exemplary practice while abstaining from physical luxuries.
“The Ramazan rituals show that one could create a peaceful living environment in an era like this, when the entire world is facing a highly complex crisis hitherto not existed in the history, only through being conscious of others’ sentiments, while being inclined to achieve self-control in all spheres,” he said.
