President, PM greet countrymen on Eid-ul-Azha

President Mohammed Shahabuddin and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today greeted countrymen as well as the Muslims across the globe on the occasion of the holy Eid-ul-Azha to be observed on June 29.

On the eve of the day, they issued separate messages praying that the holy Eid-ul-Azha brings good for all with the rise of the ideology of sacrifice.

In his message, the President said: “Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) has set an incomparable example of love, obedience and sacrifice to Almighty Allah by taking steps to sacrifice his beloved son Hazrat Ismail (AS) at the directive of Allah.”

“Azha means Qurbani (sacrifice),” he said, adding that sacrifice instills the spirit of self-sacrifice into all and also teaches them the spirit of sharing happiness and sorrow with relatives and neighbors.

Global inflation is on the rise due to the impact of the Corona pandemic and war-conflicts in different parts of the world, the head of the state said.

In this context, low-income people around the world are facing various obstacles, he added.

He urged the affluent people of the country to stand by the people affected by these hardships so that they can enjoy the holy Eid this year.

The President also called upon the citizens to sacrifice their animals in government designated places.

Shahabuddin hoped that everyone will try to prevent the environment pollution by removing the waste of sacrificial animals after Qurbani.

In her message, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said: “On the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, I am extending my greetings to all the Muslims across the globe, including Bangladesh. I want to say ‘Eid Mubarak’ (to all).”

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also said: “Let us all keep the message of the holy Eid-ul-Azha in our hearts and participate in public welfare based work from our own positions to build a non-discrimination, happy-prosperous and peaceful smart Bangladesh.”

She said the unique instance set by Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) by sacrificing his dearest thing for the satisfaction of Allah will be imitated and followed forever.

Through the festival, the capable Muslims establish the bonding of sympathy and equality among mankind by distributing meat of their sacrificial animals among relatives and neighbors, the premier added.

She greeted the countrymen and the Muslims in the world on the occasion and hoped that like every year, this Eid will bring happiness and joy to all irrespective of the rich and the poor.

Sheikh Hasina prayed to Allah for continued peace, progress and prosperity of the country and Muslim Ummah on the holy day.
