Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has wished Muslims across the UK and across the world Eid Mubarak on the occasion on Eid.
Mr Clegg said Eid is a time for families and friends and for celebrating the huge contribution Muslims make to British life through business, culture and public service.
The Deputy PM said:
I would like to wish Muslims across the country, and indeed across the world, Eid Mubarak on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr.
Muslims make a huge contribution to British society - in business, in public service, and in enriching our culture too.
And the spirit of Ramadan and Eid hold messages about family and charity from which all of us should learn.
I wish you the best for the prayers and celebrations of the coming days. Once again, Eid Mubarak.
