The Deputy Prime Minister said:

I would like to wish every Muslim family in the country, and around the world, Eid Mubarak. Eid al-Adha is a time of reflection, considering the personal contribution that can be made to charity and to society as a whole.  

I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the contributions that British Muslims make to British society. I wish Muslim families around the world health, prosperity and peace.

Once again, Eid Mubarak.
