The UN Secretary General admired the behavior of Muslims during Ramadan and held the post as a sign of solidarity

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has praised Muslims who observe fasting and other Islamic observances during Ramadan, saying their noble deeds have shown him the “true face of Islam”, reports Sabah. “The sense of peace, the expressions of generosity and solidarity that I have seen in the Muslim communities that host the refugees, as well as the resilience and bravery of the refugees themselves, are incredibly inspiring to me. This becomes a very important motivation for everything I do as Secretary-General of the United Nations,” he said ahead of his visit to Somalia next week.
According to tradition, UN Secretary Generals visit Muslim regions during Ramadan and pay attention to their problems. When Antonio Guterres was asked about visiting refugee camps where he fasted as a sign of solidarity, he replied: “When I became the Secretary-General of the United Nations, I decided that it was worth following the established tradition. However, we are now focusing not only on the problems of refugees, as before, but also on the problems of Muslim communities that are being oppressed. “I think it’s time for us to unite in the name of the world. Peace is the most valuable thing we can get on earth,” he said.
