MQI EXPRESSES CONDOLENCES ON THE DEMISE OF THE HON. BOB HAWKE, FORMER PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA

Minhaj-ul-Quran International Australia (MQI) extends its heartfelt condolences to the family of The Hon. Bob Hawke and the Australian community on the sad demise of the beloved former Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon. Bob Hawke.

Mr Hawke was not only an outstanding visionary leader but also a fine gentleman who engaged with every part of the Australian community. He will be remembered by the Australian Muslim community in his efforts on fostering a peaceful understanding with the Muslim community, especially his work with the International Centre of Muslim and non-Muslim understanding.

In 2011, Mr Hawke undertook extraordinary efforts to meet our patron in chief, his eminence Shaykh ul Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir ul Qadri during his eminence’s visit to Australia. During their meeting, various matters were discussed including ways to promote inter-faith harmony and peaceful co-existence with the Muslim community. In the current troubling times that we live in, the leadership and vision of Mr Hawke will
be surely missed.

RIP Robert James Lee Hawke.
