Our warmest regards to everyone celebrating Eid ul Fitr, in Pakistan and across the world.

On the occasion of Eid ul Fitr, the Acting British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Alison Blake said:

I am pleased to offer, on behalf of the UK Government and the staff of the British High Commission in Pakistan, our warmest regards to everyone celebrating Eid ul Fitr, in Pakistan and across the world.

Eid-ul-Fitr is a special day, bringing together friends and families as well as encouraging those who celebrate Eid to continue the lessons from the month of Ramadan throughout the rest of the year. These united beliefs, especially those of giving, charity and tolerance, are reflected in the generosity shown by Muslims around the world, including in Britain.

During the celebrations, let us keep in mind the difficulties being faced this Eid, by the military personnel involved in the dangerous battle against terrorism, and by the Pakistanis of North Waziristan who could not be in their own homes on this special day. Let’s give them the support they deserve, in order to share the true happiness and spirit that Eid brings.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes to you and your family.

“Eid Mubarak!”
