Ramadan message from Leader of Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg, MP
Leader of Liberal Democrats and Deputy Prime Minister, Rt Hon Nick Clegg, MP
I would like to take this opportunity to send my best wishes to you and your families during the holy month of Ramadan...
A time for reflecting on the spirit of human charity.
That seems especially fitting given it is almost exactly a year ago that unprecedented flooding hit Pakistan.
I visited Pakistan and I saw first hand the difference aid and support from the UK was making to the lives of hundreds of thousands of people...
Despite the fact Pakistan is off our television screens, that support needs to continue, and the UK is continuing to work with charities and the affected communities themselves.
In Ramadanís tradition of quiet contemplation, Iím sure thoughts will also turn to the Arab Spring and the popular uprisings we are witnessing across the Arab world in the name of liberty over oppression.
People from all walks of life are speaking out and risking their lives to win back their basic human rights and our thoughts are with them too.
