Prasad wishes Muslims well as Ramadan ends with Eid

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Professor Biman Prasad says Eid signifies a time to celebrate righteousness,  pledging to lead a life of truth, justice, and sacrifice for the greater good.

While wishing the Muslim community a joyous and blessed Eid-ul-Fitr, the National Federation Party leader said the holy month of Ramadan and celebration of Eid is significant as it elevates self-discipline, increased prayers, spiritual development and charity towards all, especially the underprivileged and less fortunate.

Prof Prasad said the celebration reinforces respect, tolerance, unity, goodwill, and peace are paramount for our multi-ethnic, multi-religious, and multi-cultural nation.

He said fasting is an act of both seeking purification and making sacrifices for the blessings of the almighty for peace, unity, and prosperity.

He added that they also acknowledge the important contribution made by the Muslim community in the development of Fiji and the pioneer leaders of the Islamic faith who always put national interest above anything else including personal interest in the progress of our nation.

“As our Muslim communities celebrate with their families, friends, and neighbours in a spirit of togetherness he wishes everyone, Eid Mubarak.”
