The Minister for Local Governments, Housing, Environment, Infrastructure and Transport, Parveen Kumar, commended the efforts of the Fiji Muslim League for organising an event that brings the nation’s faith together.

Mr Kumar made this comment while officiating as chief guest at the celebration of Prophet Muhammad’s birthday at Garvey Park in Tavua yesterday.

“We in Fiji are grateful that this celebration has brought us together and given us the feeling of unity in the community,” he said.

“Millions of followers of Prophet Muhammad will gather in various parts of the world to participate in the celebration of the Prophet’s birthday.”

He said the occasion gives the perfect opportunity to strengthen the bonds of unity and help build new bridges.

“It is also fitting that the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet Muhammad is celebrated on a national scale.

“There are many teachings of Islam, but I wish to highlight one of the main teachings of Prophet Muhammad that all humans are equal, all have equal rights and no one is superior to another.

“Regardless of race, gender or even a position in society, just as for the first time all Fijians right and freedom are protected under the 2013 Constitution.

“The Government and the Fiji Muslim League share similar beliefs in the power of education as a builder of nation and developer of people.

“Like Allah’s messenger said a father gives his son nothing better than a good education,” he said.

Mr Kumar also acknowledged Fiji Muslim League for their contribution to the Fijian economy.

“On behalf of the Government I commend the Fiji Muslim League for the establishment of five colleges and 17 primary schools which are  open to all Fijians.

“The fine gesture has earned the league respect and goodwill amongst the community at large,” he said.
