The president extended his greetings and good wishes to the countrymen and the world. He said people, irrespective of their classes and professions, living in the big cities return to their loved ones in the villages to develop bond of harmony, amity and unity amongst themselves.

“Let the teaching of Eid-ul-Fitr spread among all people and build a prosperous Bangladesh,” he said.

Mentioning that Islam is a religion of peace and welfare, the president said there is no place for hatred, spite, violence and localism in Islam. Islam upholds the spirit of human values, mutual coexistence, absolute tolerance, equality and universal welfare.

“Let the underlying meaning of Islam spread as guide to the liberation of humanity... May the world be filled with peace and amity,” he said.

"Eid means joy. Eid-ul-Fitr brings the message of happiness after the month-long fasting and practice of self-restraint. Let the joy spread amongst all," the president said.
