As I congratulate our community on people who won seats in congress like Ilhan &
Rashida and big congratulations to NJ Muslim community members on electoral victories:
Assad Akhtar, Passaic County Freeholder
Mohamed T. Khairullah, Mayor Prospect Park
Alaa Abdelaziz, Councilman, Paterson
Hazim Yassin, Councilman , Red Bank
and those who won the campaign even if they missed the election also for non Muslims
who won by standing for shared values for all like justice, freedom and equality...
I need to remind all that the journey has just begun and lots of work is still ahead.
The ability to mobilize the community, make coalitions and bring support should pave
the road for more involvement and participation.
My best wishes to all who shall stand for the truth and serve our community and country.
