The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to extend greetings and best wishes to the Muslim communities here in Guyana and in the Diaspora on the sacred occasion of Eid-ul-Adah.
Its observance comes during the annual Holy Pilgrimage to Mecca, The Hajj; a journey that embodies sacrifices in the quest to fulfill religious obligations.
Eid-ul-Adah reminds of unbridled humility and the willingness to selflessly make sacrifices in obedience of God. Its inspiring messages are pertinent to the spiritual advancement of all mankind which redounds in peace and togetherness. Its observance also continues to exemplify humane characteristics of generosity, morality and love for others, especially the less fortunate.
In a diverse society like Guyana where religious boundaries are often transcended, these attributes have proven their value not only in catalyzing and strengthening bonds among our people but also in forging a better understanding and appreciation of our rich cultures and religious practices.
As our Muslim brothers and sisters celebrate in traditional ways, the occasion once again brings into focus the many sacrifices Guyanese have and continue to make for self-advancement and nation-building with the common objective of a better life and future for all.
The PPP is mindful that, regrettably, due to Covid-19 protocols, related activities would be restricted. However, it’s optimistic that the significance of Eid-ul-Adah and its relevance in today’s world will not in any way be diminished.
The Party, therefore, urges that the messages and significance of this occasion be foremost in the minds of all so that hope will continue to flourish.
Once again the PPP extends best wishes for the occasion. Eid Mubarak!
