President Abdul Hamid, in his message, extended his greetings and good wishes to countrymen and the people of the world on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Fitr.

“Eid-ul-Fitr brings the message of happiness after the month-long fasting and practice of self-restraint during Ramadan. Eid is a joyous occasion for Muslims. Let joy spread among all parts of Bengal,” he said.

“Let the teachings of Eid-ul-Fitr spread among people and help them build a prosperous Bangladesh,” President Hamid added.

Noting that Islam is a religion of peace and welfare, the President said, “There is no place for hatred, spite, violence, or localism in Islam. It upholds the spirit of human values, mutual coexistence, absolute tolerance, and equality,” the president said.

He hoped that the essence and inherent significance of Islam for human emancipation would widen further, and the world be filled with peace and amicability.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in her message hoped that the practice of self-purification, restraint, amity, and harmony of the Muslims in their personal, family, social, and occupational lives would spread everywhere.
