Bangladesh marks Eid al-Fitr

Bangladesh marks Eid al-Fitr”

Eid-ul-Fitr, marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, was on Monday celebrated across Meghalaya with prayers for peace in the country and across the world.

President Jacob Zuma has wished the Muslim community in South Africa a happy Eid ul-Fitr. Now, as they commemorate Eid with family and friends, they carry on the tradition of helping neighbors and breaking bread with people from all walks of life.

Finally, we call on them to use this important occasion to pray for the government of Ghana under the distinguished leadership of His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as well as His Excellency Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to be able to deliver on the overwhelming mandate of the Ghanaian people. With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honour these values. Many members of the Muslim community condemned the message, which largely focused on terrorism.

This year Ramadan passed by nearly unmentioned by the White House.

Barack Obama hosted his first Ramadan reception in 2009 and continued through each year of his presidency.

In a statement to congratulate Muslims on the completion of their mandatory 30-day fasting ahead of the Eid celebration, the party expressed hope that Muslims will intensify their supplications and good deeds after the period.

"Muslim Americans have been part of our American family since its founding", the Obamas wrote in a statement roughly five times longer than Trump's Ramadan message.

"We are sad about the situation across the world and even in our country".

Hamid Ansari in a message said that Id-ul-Fitr marks the culmination of the holy month of Ramzan and signifies the traditional expression of brotherhood and understanding between people. "How come you don't have time for a population of your society that needs some assistance?"
