Eid messages from the UK’s political leaders

Ramadan messages from Leader of Labour Party, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Leader of the Scottish National Party, the First Minister of Wales and the Mayor of London, exclusively to The Muslim News

Rt Hon Sir Keir Starmer, Leader, Labour Party

Eid Mubarak to Muslims in the UK and around the world. I was honoured to attend an Iftar in Manchester over Ramadan and see so many people of different faiths, and none, breaking fast together.

British Muslims make an extraordinary contribution to our society. From empowering communities to working tirelessly in our hospitals, care homes, and running food banks. Islam teaches us the importance of looking after one another and striving for justice and equality. These values are also the values of the Labour Party.

As many of you gather with your loved ones this Eid, I want to take the opportunity, on behalf of the Labour Party, to wish you all an Eid Mubarak.

Rt Hon Sir Ed Davey, Leader, Liberal Democrat

On behalf of the Liberal Democrats, I wish Muslims in the United Kingdom and across the world a happy Eid.

 

Rt Hon Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland

This year will be the first since 2019 that our Muslim community is able to celebrate Eid al-Fitr without any COVID restrictions in place.

I know that the last two years have been a real challenge, especially when it comes to missing cherished religious celebrations, but I’m very grateful for the sacrifices that the community have made.

I wish all Muslims here in Scotland and across the world a joyful end to Ramadhan and a blessed time with their loved ones.

 

Rt Hon Mark Drakeford, First Minister of Wales

I would like to send my very best wishes to Muslims in Wales and across the UK who are marking the end of the holy month.

Many more of you will have enjoyed celebrating the holy month with your family, friends and neighbours due to the easing of restrictions. This year, during Eid, we should reflect on the enormous contribution that the Muslim communities of Wales have made throughout the pandemic, through the compassion and help offered to others to keep people safe in our communities.

Eid also provides us with the opportunity to celebrate the continued and important contributions Muslims make to Welsh society each and every day.

Eid Mubarak.

 

Rt Hon Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London

I would d like to wish the Muslim community in London and across the globe a very happy Eid-Ul-Fitr.
The holy month has been wonderful. We have been able to reunite with our loved ones and strengthen

our bonds with our faith in each other’s company.
I have dearly missed the chance to come together for nightly Taraweeh prayers over the last two years due to the pandemic and have loved spending time this month with different communities and meeting people from all walks of life.

Attending the first-ever interfaith Iftar at the Tower of London with leaders from across different faiths was a personal highlight, bringing together young people from different backgrounds from across the capital.

I hope you’re all able to enjoy this day with your friends and family – and I hope to see you in Trafalgar Square for the return of Eid in the Square on Saturday 7th May.

From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!
