New York: New York Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James served food items to the fasting Muslims at an Iftar Dinner organized by her office in collaboration with the New York Police Department NYPD’s Muslim Officers Society (MOS) at the Turkish Islamic Center Tayyap Sultan.
The Muslim community attended the Iftar dinner in large numbers.
Addressing the participants of the ceremony, Attorney General said: “I want to thank all those who welcomed me to this sacred place.”
She also appreciated the services of Muslim Officers Society and its President Deputy Inspector Adeel Rana.
On this occasion, Adeel Rana said that Turkish Islamic Center Tyyab Sultan is our favorite mosque.
There couldn’t be a better place for this dignified ceremony than this Turkish cultural center.

Other participants in the iftar dinner also expressed their views on this occasion.
When it was time to break the fast at the dusk, the Azan-e-Maghrib ( Evening pray calling) sounds were raised to sky, after which prayers were offered in congregation.
