ICYF-DC Secretary General’s Statement on the occasion of the Eid-Al-Fitr
Dear Sisters and Brothers ,
On behalf of the Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation I have the honour to congratulate you all on the occasion of the blessed Eid Ul Fitr Al-Mubarak.
During Holy Month of Ramadan hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide fasted from dawn to dusk and offered up their prayers to attain righteousness, peace and prosperity for our families, loved ones and the Ummah at large.
Eid of this year unfortunately has come with an immense pain in our hearts and world’s consciousness since currently a humanity catastrophe is underway in Gaza and the people of Palestine have been under offensive attacks almost all the Ramadan. Hundreds civilians among them children, women, elders have been killed, injured, thousands fled their homes. We pray for the souls of martyred Palestinians to rest in peace.
ICYF-DC has a launched a social media campaign in order to address human consciousness, stop bloodshed in Gaza and contribute to prevention of this conflict inflaming greater inter-civilization stand-offs. During these days of Eid take few minutes CONTRIBUTE to “4Clicks 4Consiusness” Campaign, make it as YOUR TIME DONATION to STOP KILLING OF INNOCENT LIVES.
ICYF-DC is committed to ideals of Islamic solidarity and will continue to support youth of Palestine as well as in other parts of OIC region. We are looking forward to adopt at the forthcoming General Assembly of ICYF-DC new strategies, policies and projects to advance development of Muslim youth. Wishing to all our Members, supporters and friends best of the health, lots of happiness, peace and prosperity we are looking forward to continue our cooperation with you for the sake of our future, of strengthening peace and understanding between cultures and civilizations.

Secretary General, ICYF-DC
