Minnesota Army National Guard leaders promoted Interfaith campaign "Blessed Ramadan" which was launched by Minnesota Council of Churches three years ago to support Muslims during their holiest month.
As per report, a lawn sign displaying the words “To Our Muslim Neighbors: Blessed Ramadan,” is part of a campaign will be showing up at several thousand churches, individual homes and educational centers across the nation to mark the expected first day of Ramadan on May 15.
The Minnesota Army National Guard, last year, reportedly requested the Council for some signs to display at their headquarters — the first such request from an armed service group as an opportunity to demonstrate that they support their soldiers, of all religious traditions.
It is of course a wonderful campaign being widely appreciated as a goodwill gesture that will help create interfaith harmony and will make people to respect religions and traditions of each others.
According to StarTribune report, The Minnesota Council of Churches launched the Blessed Ramadan campaign in 2016 not knowing what to expect. But the presidential campaign had sparked anti-Muslim sentiment, and this was a visible way for the public to show their support.
As Ramzan is the holiest month of the year for Muslims, a time of dawn-to-dusk fasting and frequent prayer. It is based on the lunar calendar, and this year is expected to start May 15 and end June 14.
