Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri 2016

Taipei’s independent mayor Ko Wen-je visited the Taipei Mosque on July 6, 2016, marking the end a Ramadan 2016, and he was greeted with the sign:  Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri 2016.

The mayor remarked that the Taipei Mosque is now too crowded and he promised to open up the government owned land behind the mosque for use by Taiwan’s Muslim population.  There are 50,000 Chinese Muslims on Taiwan and a total of 200,000 including all of the Indonesian Muslim immigrants in Taiwan.

Former president Ma Ying-jeou visited the Taipei Mosque in 2002 once.  Mayor Ko Wen-je has visited it twice since becoming Taipei mayor.
