Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Governor Mridula Sinha and Archbishop of Goa and Daman Filipe Neri Ferrão have extended their greetings on the Occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. The festival marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan during which Muslims across the world observe fasting.
“On the joyous occasion of Eid, I am extremely delight to wish all my Muslim brothers and sisters blissful Eid after a month long Ramadan,” CM Parrikar said.
“I would like the people of Goa to take solemn pledge on the auspicious day to always maintain national unity and communal harmony in the true secular spirit,” Governor Sinha was quoted by PTI.
“May this day deepen the spirit of harmony, peace and solidarity in the society,” the Governor said.
Sinha further said that Prophet Mohammad blessed us with eternal message of love, compassion and universal brotherhood. She also urged people to rededicate themselves to the service of humanity and follow the path of love and universal brotherhood.
“At this juncture when the world is afflicted with violence, social tensions, communal hatred and religious fanaticism, the perennial message of Prophet Mohammad assumes great relevance to be followed by all the people irrespective of their religion, caste and creed,” she further said.
The Archbishop extended his greetings. “On behalf of the Catholic community in Goa and on my own, I have great joy in wishing our Muslim sisters and brothers on the Occasion of their festivity of Eid-ul-Fitr,” he was quoted by the Navhind Times.
Archbishop Ferrão further said, “We pray to God that this be the culture of all those who desire to be instruments of peace in this world, Eid Mubarak!.”
