Indian Ambassador to Kuwait

Ramadan Mubarak to all. As we start the Holy month of Ramadan, I pray for the safety, wellbeing and prosperity of everyone. My greetings to the leadership of the State of Kuwait, all members of the Indian community in Kuwait and all our Kuwaiti friends.

May this holy month of Ramadan bring with it abundance of kindness, harmony and compassion. May this holy month also further strengthen the bonds of unity at all levels.

Ramadan is a particularly special month in India, a land with great diversity of religions and beliefs, with people from different socio-cultural, religious backgrounds living in complete harmony. Ramadan is a month of special importance to India which has the second largest Muslim population in the world, after Indonesia. One can witness an abundance of kindness, harmony and compassion in this Holy month.

Ramadan is a month of inner reflection, patience, gratitude, love, humility and self-restraint. It gives an important message of serving the needy and underprivileged. It also reaffirms the importance of equality and compassion. It teaches collective commitment towards society at large.

Once again to all my dear brothers and sisters from India and my dear friends in Kuwait, Ramadan Mubarak; Ramadan Kareem!
