Qutubuddin Aziz Commends MAS Efforts

Mr. Qutubuddin Aziz, a former Pakistani diplomat and council member of the World Muslim Congress who is visiting his children in California, has welcomed the adoption of a resolution upholding the sanctity of the holy fasting month of Ramadan by the US House of Representatives. Mr. Aziz said, “ I consider this a gesture of goodwill from the US House of Representatives as friendly greetings to Muslims throughout the world and an affirmation of their respect which the US government has for American Muslims.”
Mr. Aziz urged American Muslims to build stronger bridges of understanding and friendships with other friendly communities in the USA. Mr. Aziz said that he particularly appreciates the efforts of many Afro-American Muslims to discover their old Islamic ties in Africa. The success of their efforts to discover more about their Muslim past will help in deepening the links of American Muslims with the nearly 1.5 billion Muslims all over the globe. Mr. Aziz gave the greetings of the forthcoming Eid-ul-Fitr to American Muslim brothers and sisters.
Mr. Aziz highly praised the members of the Muslim American Society (MAS) for successfully lobbying to have the US House representatives to pass the Ramadan resolution.
