PRESS RELEASE

YOUMAN NABI MESSAGE 2003

The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) joins all Guyanese and the Muslim community in particular, in celebrating Youman Nabi – birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet Mohammad.

The Holy Prophet Mohammed, preached peace and unity among mankind. In fact during his own lifetime the Holy Prophet succeeded in forging unity among the peoples of Arabia.

The Holy Prophet was also uncompromising in the fight against crimes and the anti-social activities of criminals and those who benefited from such activities.

Those lessons are still relevant in our times. We urge national unity in our country generally and unity among all law abiding and democratically minded Guyanese in the fight against crimes.

As we celebrate Youman Nabi this year, the Party urges all Guyanese to unite and seek peace, for it is only through unity and peace that we can move this nation forward.
