This country’s Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, in extending best wishes to the Muslim Community on the occasion of Eid, has called for the nation to emulate the Muslim community, encouraging all citizens to open their hearts to forgive and make amends with those who’ve wronged them.
Noting that it is well known that the family unit is an important component of the Muslim community, Dr. Rowley, in his statement called on the nation to use the family unit to keep our children close to us. He said, if this cannot be achieved in our individual families, it must be done in our mosques, temples, churches and in other places of worship.
The Prime Minister reminded the nation that here in Trinidad and Tobago, everyone is fortunate to have the opportunity to share in religious ceremonies and learn from traditions outside of our own professed religion.
The Prime Minister says he looks forward to further strengthening the positive relationship his Government shares with our Muslim community.
