Press Release

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Congressman André Carson (D-IN), one of three Muslim members of the U.S. Congress, released the statement below commemorating the beginning of Ramadan, a sacred month of fasting in the Islamic faith:

“I’m wishing a Ramadan Kareem to Muslims observing Ramadan in Indiana, across America and around the world. This sacred time of fasting and sacrifice is a special opportunity for a diverse community of Muslims worldwide to grow closer to our faith and each other, and to reflect on our many blessings. Let us also make this holy month an occasion to recommit ourselves to living out the values of Islam. That includes fighting poverty, promoting peace, stamping out inequality wherever it exists, and more. Together, as a global community, we can achieve these goals, with our faith as our guide.”
