London: British Foreign Secretary William Hague has greeted the Muslims across the globe on the occasion of beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and praised community's contribution to the country.

In his message, Hague said: "As the Islamic holy month of Ramadan begins I want to send as British Foreign Secretary good wishes to Muslims across the globe. This is a very important time in the calendar.

"It's a time of fasting, of prayer, of introspection, of the gathering of families and I am very conscious as a British politician of the huge contribution that so many Muslims in Britain make across the whole breadth of our society and that is something of course that we want to see even more of in the future".

Speaking about the importance of Ramadan, he said: "It's a very, very important time of year celebrating what Ramadan is about, important values of selflessness, of charity, of compassion, of looking after people less fortunate than ourselves.

"And these are values of course that unite Muslims and non Muslims alike," he added.
