Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement marking Eid ul-Fitr:
“This week, some 100,000 British Columbians of the Muslim faith will mark Eid ul-Fitr, the last day of Ramadan. After a month of fasting from dawn to sunset, Muslims here and around the globe will break their fast a final time.
“Eid ul-Fitr celebrates not only the end of fasting, but also the many blessings in each of our lives. At this time, Muslims gather with family and friends to practise compassion, charity and good works.
“I hope that British Columbians of all faiths will join their Muslim friends and neighbours in celebrating Eid. No matter our beliefs, we should all share the values of charity, humility and acceptance.
