Dear Mayor Bill de Blasio:

On Behalf of our President Mustafa Yilmaz of the United American Muslim Association a Turkish American based group and our entire board of directors of the largest religious organization in the New York and United States. Please except our most sincere deepest appreciation of thank you as our Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City for adding Eid-al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr to the public school holiday calendar. Mayor de Blasio as you know Islam is one of the largest religions in the world, and the Muslim community is thriving not just in Brooklyn where we are based but throughout the city of New York. This decision allows our city’s Muslim community to fully practice their faith without it interfering with their school attendance and education.

Mayor de Blasio by recognizing these two important holidays we believe it will encourage the Turkish American Muslims all Muslims American living in New York /Brooklyn and make their celebrations of these important holidays more meaningful as our children will share their joys with their families. Again we are very Thankful to you as our Mayor in adding Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha to the school calendar we will continue to engage with city government to advocate to better our great city of New York.

Sincerely yours,

Ibrahim Kurtulus
