Veliaj sets Iftar for Muslim believers: Let's always behave like in the month of Ramadan
On the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, the head of the municipality of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, hosted an Iftar dinner yesterday evening for believers and leaders of the Muslim community, diplomats, deputies and members of the Municipal Council of Tirana.
In his speech, Veliaj said that the month of Ramadan is a special month, which makes everyone more loving and positive towards each other. "Sometimes I wonder, could we have Ramadan every month? I believe that each of us can make this decision, to behave every month with the sanctity that the time of Ramadan dictates to us. That way we would have a city, a society, an even more prosperous, more blessed country, an even more loving society, with more tolerant people. Therefore, I wish that every day of this city, every day of this society, every day of our life, is a day that is lived with this zeal, with this dedication, with this openness, and with this dignity", said Veliaj.
Then Veliaj added: "The best days are ahead of us! But when I think that I am probably the last of that generation that religion was forbidden, faith was forbidden, the organization of iftar would lead this whole group behind bars in those years, that's when we realize how far we have come. We have not always worked to move forward, but we have come a long way, we have come a very, very long way. Therefore, I believe that the journey and the most beautiful days, God willing and his desire, will be ahead of us. Thank you and may God accept you!".
