Eid-ul-Fitr Mubarak! My felicitations on Eid-ul-fitr / Eid-ul-adha, the joyous occasion following holy Ramadan.

The religious event marking the conclusion of Ramadan observed with fasting is important in maintaining the rich tradition and cultural festivity.

Islamic faith representing peace, compassion and harmony in semblance with other religions provides opportunity for followers through Eid-ul-fitr to appreciate life and dedicate towards humanitarian cause.

Eid like many major festivals facilitates solidarity transcending denominations within Islam besides other religions as well.

The normal relations amongst people prolonged beyond festive season demonstrating human values with mutual respect, understanding and caring could lead to peaceful co-existence.

Eid-ul-fitr / Eid-ul-adha is a reminder to begin a new chapter renouncing negative characteristics and develop positive trait for individual and collective benefits.

There are many deprived of basic living conditions beginning with political, economic and social freedom around the world.

The religious or social function is a possibility to meet and greet family, friends and neighbors creating cordial environment.

Again Eid-ul-fitr is an exciting moment bringing people together exchanging pleasantries and invitations to feast on elaborate delicacies that always is the highlight during festival.

The other aspect is to remember the less fortunate in society and sharing whatever affordable to include them in the celebration.

On that poignant note, I convey my best wishes to people rejoicing Eid-ul-Fitr / Eid-ul-Adha this year and more to follow in the near future.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
