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:

charity, of compassion, of looking after people less fortunate

non Muslims alike," he added.
