“I would like to extend, on this special special occasion, my greetings to all Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan. I was honoured to have been invited by the Queensland Intercultural Society to sponsor the first Newman Government’s Iftar Dinner at Parliament House and grateful for the opportunity to participate in the breaking of the daily fast.

Queensland is especially proud of its cultural heritage and diversity. We are home to more than 200 different cultures who collectively speak more than 220 different languages and embrace more than 100 religions and belief systems. It is this cultural diversity that makes Queensland such a vibrant place in which to live.

I would like to thank Mr Abdul Gelim for his hard work in bringing together members from all community groups to participate in this sunset meal, bringing as it does, a deeper cross cultural awareness into our culturally diverse community.”
