HOUSTON: Indian Muslim Association of Greater Houston (IMAGH), will be celebrating Eid Milan this Saturday, July 16. This will be the 7th annual Eid Milan serving the Houston community. This event is held every year to celebrate Eid – ul –Fitr, a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

Congressman Al Green is the Chief Guest and Indo American Political Action Committee (IPAC) is the Guest Organization.  The new Consul General of India, Anupam Ray will be the Guest of Honor (if he comes back from Washington in time).

Dr. Fatima Mawji, a noted Community leader is the Event Chair.  Munir Ibrahim and Dr. Yunus Langha are the Organizing Committee Co- Chairs for this year’s Eid Milan.

The event will hold a  Cultural Fashion Show by Jasmeeta Singh and also include a short skit about unity of all religions by Fatehali Chatur. As every year, there will be a live performance by a well- known musician and this year, Vishwakarma Raj will entertain with his rendition of Mohammed Rafi’s songs.

The Eid Milan event promotes the message of peace, unity, tolerance, and continues to break the boundaries between communities, cultures, and religions. IMAGH is a non-profit, non-religious, and non-political organization serving the South Asian community.

IMAGH is the umbrella for two other organizations, Club 65 and South Asian Youth Alliance (SAYA).
