First Minister Nicola Sturgeon sends Eid Mubarak greetings. She said:
Today I send heartfelt Eid greetings to all our Muslim neighbours and friends on this special day of celebration, on behalf of the Scottish Government and the people of Scotland.
Eid marks a joyous end to Ramadan’s month of fasting and spiritual renewal. It is a festival characterised by charitable giving; generous hospitality; and spending time with family and friends.
It is a time when everyone in Scotland can reflect on the contribution the Muslim community – like so many other faith communities – makes to our diverse, modern nation.
