The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has shared his well wishes for the Muslim celebration of Eid ul-Fitr.
The Foreign Secretary said:
“I send my best wishes to Muslims in the United Kingdom and across the world as they come together to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr.
“In many places this Ramadan has been marked by tragedy and violence rather than a peaceful reflection. We offer our thoughts and prayers to all those who have been caught up in conflict over this period.
“Eid ul-Fitr is a special time for millions of people, with celebrations that highlight the diversity and reach of Islam. I wish you all a peaceful Eid ul-Fitr.
