KUWAIT CITY, April 27: In his message on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the Indian Ambassador to Kuwait, HE Sibi George said, on behalf of the Indian community in Kuwait, I extend my greetings to HH the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, HH the Crown Prince Sheikh Misha’al Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the government and the friendly people of the State of Kuwait.
“Eid-ul-Fitr is a special occasion as we reaffirm our resolve to abide by the universal values of peace, prosperity, compassion, commitment to the welfare of society, spirit of sacrifice and universal brotherhood. It is a festival to work together for unity and fraternity in an inclusive society. This occasion is also an important reminder for all of us that no matter who you are, we are all equal in humanity. I pray that this festival strengthens our belief in charity, our faith in fraternity and our commitment in compassion,” the message read.
The ambassador said, Eid-ul-Fitr is a special festival in India, a land with abundant diversity of religions and beliefs, with more than 1.3 billion people from different sociocultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds living in complete harmony. India, which has the second largest Muslim population in the world after Indonesia, celebrates this occasion with great fervor and enthusiasm. In complete consonance with India’s age-old beliefs and values, people from different religions and faiths come together on this special day to celebrate this festival.
Here in Kuwait, this Eid is indeed a special occasion as it comes after the difficult period of the devastating Covid-19 pandemic. I am happy to partake in the Ramadan-related unique traditions of Kuwait and also celebrations of Eid with the warm and generous people of the State of Kuwait.
“I wish Eid Mubarak to all Indian nationals and friends of India in Kuwait. May you all be safe and stay blessed,” the message concluded.
