CP attends Iftar with Muslim community
Commissioner Tsang Wai-hung attended Iftar - evening meal for breaking the daily fast during the Ramadan - at the Kowloon Mosque in Tsim Sha Tsui on August 8.
According to the Muslim faith, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar is a holy month called Ramadan - time of praying, worshipping and fasting, as well as doing charity.
Mr Tsang was invited to the function in recognition of the long-standing relationship between the Force and the Muslim community, along with Kowloon West Regional Commander Fan Sik-ming, Yau Tsim District (YTDIST) Commander Wong Kwok-wai, YTDIST Commander (Designate) Cheung Kwai-kee, YTDIST Deputy Commander Chung Sze-pong and YTDIST Police Community Relations Officer M M Khan. Other guests included Secretary for Home Affairs, Mr Tsang Tak-sing, and various Consul-Generals in Hong Kong, including those from the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iran, and Bangladesh.
To support the Force's Strategic Direction on "Engaging the Community", YTDIST has adopted a progressive and pragmatic approach to enhance services for the Non-ethnic Chinese (NEC) communities, including the Muslim. YTDIST has also incorporated NEC community policing into its Annual Policing Plan as a key operational priority and launched a series of initiatives to support the strategic directions set by the Kowloon West Sub-working Group on NEC, namely proactively engaging the NEC communities; enhancing the professional qualities and racial sensitivity of officers; and supporting frontline units.
YTDIST's forthcoming initiative will be an anti-drug variety show for NEC parents and children on December 10. Many NEC community leaders, non-government organisations serving ethnic minorities as well as NEC schools have pledged support for the event.
