Washington DC, 15 April 2023 (TDI): On the auspicious occasion of the last 10 days of Ramadan, Vice President Kamala Harris issued a statement celebrating the Muslim members of the administration and wishing all those observing a blessed conclusion to the holy month.
“During the blessed last 10 days of Ramadan, we celebrate our Administration’s incredible Muslim team,” said Vice President Harris.
“Their contributions to our nation and their dedication to service inspire us all. To all those around the world observing, may your prayers and fasts be accepted.”
To mention, Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, prayer, and reflection for Muslims around the world. During this time, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours and engage in additional prayer and charitable acts.
Notably, the last 10 days of Ramadan are considered particularly blessed, and many Muslims spend them in intense prayer and supplication.
So, the Biden-Harris Administration has been committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in its hiring practices and appointments, with a focus on increasing representation of underrepresented communities.
Moreover, the administration has also sought to ensure that all Americans can practice their faith without fear of discrimination or persecution.
“The contributions of our Muslim colleagues are invaluable to the success of our administration and to the strength of our nation,” said Vice President Harris.
“Their dedication to service and their commitment to the common good embody the best of the American spirit. As we celebrate the end of Ramadan, we are grateful for their leadership and honored to work alongside them.”
Thus, the Vice President’s statement underscores the administration’s commitment to recognizing and celebrating the diversity of its team and the American people.
In a nutshell, by promoting inclusion and recognizing the contributions of all American Muslims, the administration aims to build a stronger and more resilient nation.
