Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh extends his greetings to the people of Manipur on the ‘joyous’ occasion of Id-ul-Fitr.
Id-ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramzan, the Islamic Holy month of fasting. Ramzan is not only about refraining from food and drinks but also about abstaining from evil thoughts, words and action. The festival creates an atmosphere where one is encouraged and supported to become a better person. The noble ideals that mark Id-ul-Fitr therefore hold important values and lessons that are relevant to each one of us irrespective of religion and belief systems, Biren said in his message.
“In view of the prevailing situation arising out of an aggressive Covid-19 pandemic, I urge our Muslim brethren to restrict the celebration within the confines of our homes so that together we may emerge out of this epic disaster with least damage, stronger and wiser,” Biren said.
“May the festival strengthen brotherhood and harmony and bring peace and prosperity to our state,” he added.
