Malta: Muslim community meets PM, asks for school support

A delegation representing the Muslim Community in Malta has paid a visit to Prime Minister, Lawrence Gonzi at his office in Castille.

The delegation was headed by the Imam, Muhammad El Sadi and Wagdi Nashnosh, General Secretary of the Malta Branch of the World Islamic Call Society.

They discussed the needs of the Muslim community and the delegation pledged full co-operation with the Maltese government for the common good.

The Imam told that the Muslim community's urgent need is more government support for Mariam Albatool School as a charitable, non-governmental institution and as a unique experience of harmony in multi-culturalism to enable it to continue its spiritual and educational mission and to enhance more mutual respect, harmony and integration in the society.

The Imam presented the Prime Minister with a copy of the recently-published translation of the Qur'an into the Maltese Language. This translation was undertaken by Martin Zammit and the Imam himself.
