Eid messages from political leaders – 2016

Tim Farron MP, Liberal Democrat Leader
As-Salamu Alaykum.
As the month of Ramadan comes to an end, I would like to wish Muslims in the United Kingdom and all over the world a happy Eid-ul-Fitr.
Eid for Muslims is a time for reflection as we consider the world we live in, and our part in it. In the light of some desperately tragic events, we all need to consider how we can bring about greater togetherness and show humility to one another.
I was keen to emphasise the importance of this, for Britons of all faiths and none, when joining Muslims marking Ramadan at the London Central mosque earlier in the month.
It was clear to me on that visit and throughout Ramadan, the work of so many Muslims who work to transform the lives of those less fortunate, be it through selfless acts of good will and charity.
As we come out of the longest Ramadan for 33 years and the days begin to become a little shorter, I look forward to continuing to work with the many Muslim communities up and down the country – building on that message of togetherness, humility and service to others.
Thank you and Eid Mubarak.

Rt Hon Nicola Sturgeon MSP First Minister of Scotland
Today I send heartfelt Eid greetings to all our Muslim neighbours and friends on this special day of celebration, on behalf of the Scottish Government and the people of Scotland.
Eid marks a joyous end to Ramadan’s month of fasting and spiritual renewal. It is a festival characterised by charitable giving; generous hospitality; and spending time with family and friends.
It is a time when everyone in Scotland can reflect on the contribution the Muslim community – like so many other faith communities – makes to our diverse, modern nation.
Eid Mubarak.

Carwyn Jones AM, First Minister of Wales
As families and friends come together during this special time, let us celebrate the contribution that the Muslim communities of Wales make to our society.
The values of generosity, forgiveness and compassion, which are celebrated during Eid, are ones which should be valued and upheld across Wales and the rest of the world. I wish all those who are celebrating a very happy and joyous Eid al-Fitr.
