"This Great Festival": Alex Salmond Celebrates Muslim Butchery Feast


Scottish First Minister, Alex Salmond

On behalf of the Scottish Government, it gives me great pleasure to wish all of Scotland’s Muslim communities - and especially those returning from performing the Hajj - a wonderful Eid-ul-Adha as you celebrate the Feast of Sacrifice. This great festival is a time to reflect on how millions of Muslims from all over the world and from all walks of life share a common bond as equal brothers and sisters, united in their faith and pilgrimage. It is a time of sharing with the poor and giving to charity so that the whole community can take part in the feast and join fully in the celebrations. And it is the perfect occasion to recognise and celebrate the contribution Scotland’s Muslims make to the life of our nation. I wish you all Eid Mubarak!
