HAJJ - THE PILGRIMAGE OF MUSLIMS

UDM PRESIDENT BANTU HOLOMISA AND
MEMBERS OF THE UDM

The UDM wishes all Muslims well with the commencement of the Hajj. We hope that it is a time of peace and joy for the Muslim Community.

The symbolism of Abraham's sacrifice and the love that bound his family together, holds significant meaning for all South Africans. We as country must realise the importance of sacrifice for the greater good, and the fact that all the people of this country are part of a family.

As Muslims commemorate the Hajj, we express our believe that this community must play a valuable role in South Africa's pilgrimage from a divided society to world class nation and a home for our rainbow family.
