The atmosphere at the Iftar de la Paix was one of hope and solidarity. Prominent figures such as Yael Beaun-Pivet and Stanislas Guerini enriched the evening with their presence, symbolising civil union around the values of dialogue and peace. The diversity of the participants reflects France’s ability to embrace its cultural and religious plurality, transforming differences into points of convergence.

The speeches underlined the importance of conviviality and sharing, essential during the holy month of Ramadan, but also as principles guiding cohabitation in a multicultural society. Chalghoumi’s speech was a highlight, leaving a lasting impression with its call for peace and solidarity. His voice was a reminder that dialogue between cultures and religions is the surest path to a harmonious society.

The event was not just a moment to break the fast; it served as a vibrant model of peaceful coexistence. By sharing the iftar meal, the participants embodied the ideal of a society where understanding and friendship between peoples are possible and desirable.

Chalghoumi’s initiative is part of a wider movement to strengthen the fabric of French society through mutual respect and recognition. It is a perfect example of how acts of faith and traditions can serve as bridges, not barriers, between people of different beliefs.
