A MESSAGE FROM THE PPP ON THE OCCASION OF EID-UL-ADAH
The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) wishes to take this opportunity to extend Eid-ul-adha greetings and
best wishes to our Muslim brothers and sisters here in Guyana and in the Diaspora.
A national holiday, Eid-ul-Adah reminds of unbridled humility and the willingness to selflessly make
sacrifices in obedience to God. Its message is seen as pertinent to the spiritual upliftment of all mankind
which redounds in peace and togetherness. It comes during the annual Holy Pilgrimage to Mecca, The
Hajj; a journey that embodies sacrifices in the quest to fulfill religious obligations and which is
demonstrative of the teachings of equality.
Its observance continues to exemplify humane characteristics of generosity, morality and love for
others, especially the less fortunate. In a multi-religious society like Guyana these attributes have
proven their value not only in catalyzing and strengthening bonds among our people, but which
continue to forge better understanding and appreciation of our cultures.
Unfortunately, while traditional celebrations of this auspicious occasion have been curtailed due to the
ongoing impact of the COVID-19, nevertheless the party urges reflection on the pertinent messages of
the occasion and the many sacrifices Guyanese have made over time for self-advancement and nationbuilding with the common objective of a better life and future for all.
