Eid al-Adha Message from Catherine Royle, British Charge d’Affaires

"At this time of year Muslims in Afghanistan, Britain and throughout the world will be celebrating Eid al-Adha with their friends and families".

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

“Many Afghans will have overcome significant challenges to observe the hajj pilgrimage, joining pilgrims from all over the world in Makkah. This is an appropriate time for Afghans to reflect on what unites them. And for us all to reflect on the common values that unite us, whatever our faith.

Eid Mubarak”.
