Congratulations to the Indian Crescent Society of Australia on this inaugural newsletter.
I’m pleased to hear that since your launch in June 2016, your organisation has focussed on supporting the thousands of Indian Muslims across Australia.
It is organisations like yours that can make a powerful and constructive contribution to our multicultural Australia.
You not only have an important role in promoting your culture, language and traditions, but you have the ability to work with other religious and ethnic organisations across Australia to promote peace and harmony in the community.
Best wishes to you all for the year ahead.
Senator Hon. Zed Seselja
Assistant Minister for Social Services and Multicultural Affairs
