Message from the Foreign Secretary on Eid ul Fitr

On the occasion of Eid ul Fitr, Foreign Secretary William Hague said: “I am delighted to send my best wishes to Muslims in Britain and across the world as they mark the end of the month of Ramadan“.

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

“Eid ul Fitr celebrates the completion of a month of fasting, prayer, devotion and charitable giving. It is a fitting time to remember all those who are in need around the world, in particular those who are struggling to build a better future for their societies in the Middle East and North Africa.

“So to Muslims around the world on this very important day of celebration, I send my very best and wish you Eid Mubarak.”
