Arunachal Pradesh Governor BD Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have in separate messages extended greetings to the people on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, celebrated by members of the Muslim community across the globe.
The governor in his message said that the “holy month of Ramzan is observed to imbibe good thoughts and benevolence towards the fellow human beings.”
“Let us faithfully and practically perpetuate the excellent tenets of Eid-ul-Fitr, beyond petty religious parameters which are hindering the march of peace in this world,” Mishra said. He also urged all the people to strictly observe the protocols for protection against Covid-19.
“Eid mubarak to my Muslim brothers and sisters of the state. May the new moon bring with it good health and prosperity of all sentient beings,” the chief minister stated in his message.
Quoting Shahi Imam Ahmed Bukhari, Khandu appealed to all to follow the Covid-19 protocols and offer prayers of Eid at home. “While the festival is celebrated by meeting loved ones and enjoying lavish feasts, the celebrations this year will be different. The almighty knows we are fighting a pandemic of mega proportions. Let’s offer him prayers from the confines of our homes,” he said.
