Muslims from across Indiana broke their daily Ramadan fast under the Statehouse rotunda Tuesday evening in an event that Gov. Mitch Daniels says he has come to look forward to each year. On an evening when recitations of the Quran echoed through the halls of power, Daniels told more than 300 Muslims that their faith, values and sense of optimism are contributing to Indiana's prosperity.

"The Muslim community as I have come to know it," Daniels said, "is a talented, principled, value-driven, faithful and very strong contributing factor to the promise of Indiana."
