Eid al-Fitr

On the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, the great festival of the followers of Islam, President Vidyadevi Bhandari has given her best wishes. Wishing Eid on Tuesday, she said that diversity is the identity and strength of Nepali society.

On the auspicious occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, the great festival of the followers of Islam, I would like to express my heartfelt best wishes for happiness, peace, and prosperity to all the Nepalese followers of Islam at home and abroad. The Eid message said, "Eid has helped to further strengthen the existing culture of tolerance and cooperation in a diverse Nepali society."

According to Bhandari, the tradition of giving alms in the Islamic community as well as the practice of receiving blessings from the people on the occasion of Eid and exchanging happiness with each other reflect the strong human side inherent in Nepali culture. He believes that Eid will help preserve and promote the original culture and traditions of the Islamic community.

Stating that diversity is the identity and strength of Nepali society, she said, "Our constitution has provided equal opportunity to all by uniting the various castes, languages, religions, and cultures in the country in a single chain of unity." It is the common duty of all of us to promote Nepali nationalism and national unity by assimilating this sacred spirit of the constitution.

She wished that Eid would strengthen the spirit of national unity and cultural solidarity in Nepal and provide inspiration for building a civilized, prosperous and prosperous society.
