‘Let us not forget the lessons of sacrifice and empathy’- ERC urges


See below Eid-ul-Adha message from the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC):

The Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) extends warm Eid–ul–Adha greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters, and all Guyanese as we observe this significant occasion.

Known as the ‘festival of sacrifice’, Eid-ul-Adha marks the culmination of The Pilgrimage to Mecca or the Hajj. The event amplifies a profound message of humility and serves as a poignant reminder to all to extoll the values of dutifulness, obedience to God and selflessness.

The significance of the sacred rituals of the Hajj and the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha is an opportunity for all Guyanese to strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood, regardless of our ethnic or religious backgrounds.

In our generosity and kindness with our less fortunate neighbours, friends, and members of our community, we showcase the essence of Eid-ul-Adha and reinforce the spirit of humanity that binds us together.

During this national holiday, as we gather with our loved ones to offer prayers, share meals, and exchange warm wishes, let us not forget the lessons of sacrifice and empathy that Eid-ul-Adha and the Hajj teaches us. May this occasion inspire us to be more compassionate, understanding, and forgiving towards one another.

It is the view of the Commission that our celebration of Eid-ul-Adha, as with other religious observances, serves as a testament to the peaceful coexistence and religious freedom that we cherish in Guyana.

It serves as a reminder of our shared humanity and the collective efforts required to build a society grounded in respect, tolerance, dignity and decency.

Eid Mubarak from the Ethnic Relations Commission!
