Message of Hon. Andrew Barr
ACT Chief Minister

Congratulations on the first edition of the Indian Crescent Society of Australia’s newsletter and the formation of your Society.

Indian Muslim culture is a rich and important part of the ACT and the Society can play a vital role in developing cultural links that bring people together. Your passionate advocacy for a more inclusive society can make Canberra and Australia a better place to live for all.

Canberra is a proud multicultural city and sharing culture, traditions and heritage is an important part of a diverse and successful society. The generosity of Indian Muslims in sharing your own culture with the wider Australian community is very much appreciated and I hope it continues for many years to come.

Good luck with your endeavours and I hope Indian Muslims can continue to play an important role in Australian society.

Andrew Barr MLA
