Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and MLA David Swann have released the following statement on Eid al-Fitr:
“Today is Eid al-Fitr, a day that marks the end of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting, reflection and community service for Muslims.
“Across Alberta Muslims will be gathering in Mosques, parks and public spaces to celebrate the end of their month of fasting, spirituality and service to those less fortunate.
“We would like to wish Eid Mubarak to all Muslims today. After a month of fasting and spiritual reflection and replenishment we hope you enjoy your much-deserved celebration.
“The Alberta Liberals proudly count diversity, inclusion and multiculturalism among our core values. We are proud to have Muslims add their cultural diversity to our great province.
“May this Eid al-Fitr by a joyous one for Muslims across the province.”
