High Commissioner’s speech at Iftar:

H.E Md Faridul Haq Khan, Hon’ble State Minister for Religious Affairs,

Respected Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

1.   It is my great privilege to welcome each and every one of you to today's Iftar. The holy month of Ramadan is a special time of the year, and I am honored to share my greetings on this occasion with all of you.

2.    Iftar is a time of reflection, gratitude, and community. It is a time when people from all walks of life come together to break bread, share stories, and celebrate the blessings of life. It is a time when we are reminded of the values that are at the heart of our faiths and cultures – values such as compassion, empathy, and kindness.

3.    As we gather here today, we are reminded of the deep bonds of friendship and cooperation that exist between India and Bangladesh. Our two countries share a rich history and a deep cultural connection that is reflected in the daily lives of our people.

4.    Our relationship is built on the principles of mutual respect, trust, and understanding. We have always stood by each other in times of need and worked together towards the betterment of our people. We have shared the joys of success and the sorrows of tragedies, and have always remained committed to each other's wellbeing.

5.    Today, as we gather here to break bread together, we reaffirm our commitment to strengthening these bonds of friendship and cooperation. We believe that events such as this Iftar can serve as a powerful symbol of our shared commitment to tolerance, compassion, and inclusivity. They remind us that despite our differences, we are all part of a larger community that is united by our common humanity.

6.   I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warmest wishes to our brothers and sisters in Bangladesh who are observing Ramadan. May this holy month bring you and your families peace, prosperity, and happiness.May it also remind us of our shared values and the need to work towards greater understanding and mutual respect.

7.   In conclusion, I would like to thank each and every one of you for joining us this evening and making this Iftar a truly memorable one. May we continue to strengthen the bonds of friendship between India and Bangladesh, and work towards a more prosperous future for all.

Thank you.
