Eid Mubarak | Linda Duncan, MP
August 8th, 2013 - 3:33pm
On behalf of Canada’s New Democrats, I wish to extend best wishes to all who are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan.
I know that during this festive period, Muslims in Edmonton, across the country and around the world will be coming together in a renewal of faith, gratitude and optimism for the future.
This is also a time when believers make special efforts to share the grace they have received by helping those who are less fortunate. Reaching out to those in need is a tenet of Islam and a value that all Canadians share.
Today, as you celebrate Eid ul-Fitr, I and my colleagues wish you to know that we share your hope for a more peaceful world.
