President Sends Ramadan Greetings

Yesterday President Biden issued a Statement (full text) extending best wishes from himself and the First Lady to Muslims across the U.S. and around the world as they begin the holy month of Ramadan. The Statement says in part:

Today especially, we remember the universal human right to practice, pray, and preach our faiths peacefully and openly. And together with our partners, the United States stands in solidarity with Muslims who continue to face oppression—including Uyghurs in the People’s Republic of China, Rohingya in Burma, and other Muslim communities facing persecution around the world.
