The Prime Minister sends his best wishes to the Muslim community for a joyous and peaceful Eid al-Adha.
Speaking ahead of Eid al-Adha, David Cameron said:
I send my best wishes to Muslims in Britain and around the world celebrating the holy festival of Eid al-Adha.
At this time of year, as is so often the case, we will see Muslims of all ages and backgrounds putting others before themselves, giving to worthy causes and praying for those in need.
I commend Britain’s near 3 million Muslims for their charity, their self-sacrifice and their devotion to God. I believe that our country is a much stronger one because we have people of faith and belief. Britain’s Muslims, Christians, Jews, Sikhs and Hindus; their institutions and their values help give us that strength.
I hope you have a joyous and peaceful festival. Eid Mubarak!
