Glo greets Muslims on Eid-el-Fitri

Eid-ul-Fitr, the festival marking the culmination of fasting and holy month of Ramzan, is being celebrated across the country today.

For the first time in almost two decades, the White House has chose to skip hosting the annual Eid al-Fitr dinner celebrating the end of Ramadan.

Hillary Clinton resurrected the event when she was First Lady in February 1996, hosting about 150 people for a reception for Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month.

Breaking with tradition, the White House under President Donald Trump did not host an iftar dinner, the meal Muslims eat to break their daily fast during Ramadan.

"On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr", Trump said in a statement.

How long are Eid ul-Fitr holidays worldwide? "On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, my best wishes to all", Modi had said.

"Don't let us forget to continue to assist our leaders in all the tiers of government with prayers, so that they can lead us aright and move the country forward in all ramifications".

The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on the observation of the new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality. The PM wished all fellow Canadian-Muslims "Eid Mubarak", a festival that will be observed across the world on June 25 and 26, in a video shared online. May ALLAH bring you joy, happiness, great fortunes and prosperity on this blessed occasions. "May this day strengthen in each one of us, an unflinching faith in our unity and common destiny that has characterized our composite culture over the ages", Mukherjee said.
