“In connection with the holy month of Ramadan we believe it extremely important to establish peace and security in the places of tension in the Muslim world -Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine and so on, put an immediate stop to all armed hostilities and terrorist acts there, and preserve their monuments and places of worship that are of great historical and religious value,” the Board said in a statement.
It said that the Muslims “have been angered by the disrespectful and aggressive attitude towards the holy places of religions” and “call on the international community not to remain indifferent to the tragedy unfolding in the Middle East for the sake of the planet’s well-being, stability, and inter-and intra-confessional peace”.
“There should be no those among us who reject the ideas of brotherhood and friendship and who support the murderers and abusers who spill other people’s blood,” the Board said.
Fasting during the month of Ramadan (to last until July 27) is the duty of each adult Muslim. During the fasting they are to refrain from food, water and smoking during the day and are to do acts of mercy, pray and read the Koran.
