Obama extends Eid greetings to Muslims
* Hillary reiterates US desire to seek relationship with Muslims based on mutual interest, respect
WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama has sent Eidul Fitr greetings to Muslims around the world on the eve of the festival that marks the completion of Ramzan.
“As Muslims in the United States and around the world complete the month of Ramzan and celebrate Eidul Fitr, Michelle and I would like to extend our personal greetings on this joyous occasion,” he said.
“Throughout the month, Muslim communities collect and distribute zakatul fitr so that all Muslims are able to participate in this day of celebration. As I said in Cairo, my administration is working to ensure that Muslims are able to fulfil their charitable obligations not just during Ramzan, but throughout the year. On behalf of the American people, we congratulate Muslims in the United States and around the world on this blessed day. Eid Mubarak,” he added.
Mutual respect: In a separate message, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also greeted Muslims on Eid, reiterating the US’ desire to seek a new beginning with Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect.
“In 1996, my husband and I were privileged to host the first ever White House Eid celebration, which has now become a tradition. And this year, I hosted an Iftar at the State Department, with Muslims and non-Muslims attending. We hope that reinforces every year that all faiths have a home here in the United States,” she added. app
