KUALA LUMPUR, May 23 – The Azerbaijani Ambassador to Malaysia, Professor Qaley Allahverdiyev, in extending his Aidilfitri greetings to his fellow citizens and Malaysians, has stressed the importance of humanism in the holy month of Ramadan, especially during these challenging times of COVID-19 pandemic.
Professor Allahverdiyev made reference to the recent speech by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev who had strongly advised that in the current circumstances, the older generation need to be treated with special attention, ‘as it is the elderly who have the most serious implications in connection with this disease’.
“The Holy Ramadan, per se, teaches us about kindness, compassion and many other charitable behaviours.
“Solidarity for the sake of humanism is one of them. We need humanism more than ever, especially in these difficult days following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic,” the ambassador said in a statement to Bernama.
Allahverdiyev, who is also the Dean of Diplomatic Corps in Malaysia, also extended his message to all fellow Azerbaijani citizens residing or temporarily visiting Malaysia and Malaysian brothers and sisters on the occasion of the upcoming Aidilfitri celebration by wishing them robust health and happiness.
In conjunction with Ramadan, the ambassador said the embassy hosted and sponsored Iftar dinner yesterday for the residents of the Mesra Charity Home or Pertubuhan Kebajikan Pusat Jagaan Sri Mesra, Ampang.
“I and employees of our embassy would like to join this great occasion but due to the MCO restrictions related with the COVID-19, we postponed our wish to another appropriate date,” he said.
