I am genuinely honoured to convey best wishes to the Indian Crescent Society of Australia. My residence, political role and lifelong interest in other nations and cultures has allowed me frequent interaction with Indian Muslims. I note many valuable groups whether AMU Alumni graduates or aged care advocates working to advance Australia.Your endeavours for diversity, knowledge and cooperation are commendable.
Christmas is not only a religious event but has an essence of goodwill and friendship. My wife remarked of seeing a young Muslim mother with her children the other day and the enraptured joy that spread across her face observing local Christmas decorations. We need more of this and less politically manufactured enmity.
