Prime Minister David Cameron has paid tribute to the contribution of Muslim communities across Britain in a message for Eid al-Adha.
Mr Cameron said:
On this holy festival of Eid al-Adha I send my warmest wishes to Muslims in the UK and across the world.
Firstly, I want to pay tribute to the Muslim communities across Britain who continue to make a valuable and lasting contribution to our country.
On the world stage, this Eid celebration comes during a momentous period of change. But with change comes uncertainty, and we must not forget those that still suffer in their fight for freedom.
So let me wish everyone peace, happiness and unity during this special time and say Eid Mubarak.
