President of the United States Joe Biden wishes to Muslim communities and around the world.

The president said in a statement,

As many of our fellow Americans begin fasting tomorrow, we are reminded of how difficult this year has been. In this pandemic, friends and loved ones cannot yet gather together in celebration and congregation, and far too many families will sit down for iftar with loved ones missing.”

Biden said in the message that “our Muslim communities begin the month of revelation with renewed hope.”

“Many will focus on increasing their consciousness of the presence of God in their lives, reaffirming their commitment to the service of others that their faith compels, and expressing gratitude for the blessings they enjoy—health, well-being, and life itself,” they said.

President further added to his statement that,

He added that White House festivities marking Ramazan will be held virtually this year amid the coronavirus pandemic, but they will resume “the traditional White House Eid celebration in person next year, inshallah.

Noting that “Muslim Americans continue to be targeted by bullying, bigotry, and hate crimes” across the country, the president said, “This prejudice and these attacks are wrong. They are unacceptable. And they must stop. No one in America should ever live in fear of expressing his or her faith,” they said.

He promised that his administration “will work tirelessly to protect the rights and safety of all people.”

Earlier, an order has been issued by President Joe Biden regarding homemade guns as these “ghost guns” are unregistered and untraceable.

He stated on Thursday, “Gun violence in this country is an epidemic, and it’s an international embarrassment.”

Biden spoke in the White House Rose Garden on Thursday. He said that 106 people are killed every day by guns in the country.

“This is an epidemic for God’s sake. And it has to stop.”

In the executive order, Biden has given the Justice Department 30 days to propose a rule that will help reduce the number of so-called “ghost guns”.

According to the international news agency, these guns are self-assembled, they do not contain any serial number and cannot be traced.

He said, “Anyone from a criminal to a terrorist can buy this kit and, in as little as 30 minutes, put together a weapon.”
