The Fiji Muslim League is praying that good sense will prevail and all earnest efforts being made will soon yield positive results and the safe return of our peacekeepers.

Forty-five Fijian soldiers working as United Nation peacekeepers remain captive to a militant group in Syria’s Golan Heights.

The league’s national president, Hafizud Dean Khan, said they were requesting all mosques and centres to pray for the well- being of the 45 Fijian peacekeepers.

“The league and Fijian Muslims share the concern that as Fijian troops are serving in a peacekeeping capacity under United Nations mandate, any armed or hostile captivity of such personnel should not have happened,” Mr Khan said.

He said the Fijian peacekeepers had served gallantly and peacefully over the years in many locations.

“Their dedication to keep a neutral stance in the line of duty is depictive of the kindness, friendliness and generosity for which the Fijians are well recognised around the world.”
