Celebrating Ramadan

 

"Ramadan Kareem" to all Victorian Muslim families.

I joined my parliamentary colleagues to celebrate diversity during Ramadan at the 11th annual Victorian State Parliament Iftar Dinner organised by the Australian Intercultural Society (AIS)

The event was attended by 250 guests, including more than 20 MPs and consuls representing more than 30 countries.

The dinner was co-hosted by Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs Inga Peulich MLC and AIS Advisory board member George Donikian was master of ceremonies.

The keynote speaker was Hon Linda Dessau AM, Governor of Victoria.

Additional speakers included Mr Ahmet Keskin, executive director of AIS and Sheikh Abdurrahman Malas, who gave the call to prayer (adhan) and recited several verses from the Quran.

The evening concluded with a lovely Turkish instrumental musical performance.
