Manipur governor, chief minister, ministers, student bodies greeted the people of Manipur especially Muslim brethren on the auspicious and joyous occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

Governor Najma Heptula, in a message, said that the holy festival follows the month-long fasting period of Ramadan and it is celebrated in a spirit of peace, love and universal brotherhood. It embraces one and all within its divine fold and teaches mankind to do good deeds to enrich the soul. The message of Eid-ul-Fitr is relevant today more than ever, when there is mistrust and turmoil all around us, she said.

“Let us celebrate ‘Eid-ul-Fitr’ with a firm faith in the Almighty and partake of His boundless love with a feeling of oneness rising above our differences. Our world is too small a world and our life too short a life to harbour any ill-will against one another. While celebrating the Festival, let us all remember that the world is one big family and resolve to work together for a peaceful and prosperous society,” she added. 

CM Biren Singh, in a message, stated that Ramzan is not only about refraining from food and drinks but also about abstaining from evil thoughts, words and action. The festival creates an atmosphere where one is encouraged and supported to become a better person. The noble ideals that mark Eid-ul-Fitr therefore hold important values and lessons that are relevant to each one of us irrespective of religion and belief systems, he added.

“In view of the prevailing situation arising out of an aggressive COVID-19 pandemic, I urge our Muslim brethren to restrict the celebration within the confines of our homes so that together we may emerge out of this epic disaster with least damage, stronger and wiser,” the chief minister urged.

“May this auspicious occasion be the harbinger of peace, progress, prosperity and happiness and strengthen the bonds of communal harmony, brotherhood and amity,” said minister O Lukhoi Singh in a message.

Let us all rededicate ourselves to truthfulness, sincerity, self control, patience and human dignity, he added.

Minister Satyabrata Singh, in a message, also greeted every citizen in Manipur, especially the Muslim brethren, a joyous Id Mubarak.

“May Allah open the doors of happiness and prosperity for all. Let us pay gratitude to the divine light for all the wonderful things around us. Have a blessed day,” he wished.

“As Manipur is suffering intense misery and facing hardships due to the COVID (second) wave, I sincerely appeal to everyone to undergo vaccination, follow SOP and take precautions to redress the issue,” he added.

Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee MPCC president Govindas Konthoujam, in a message, stated “This is a festival of sacrifice rising above the narrow barriers of self-interest and self-esteem for the good of all. The festival also promotes tolerance, harmony and goodwill amongst people belonging to all the communities. Let us celebrate the festival by pursuing COVID-19 Protocol and following Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)”.

Student bodies including All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU), All Meetei Pangal Students’ Union of Manipur (AMPSUM), and Manipur Students’ Federation (MSF) also greeted the people on the occasion.

Delhi Association of Manipur Muslim Students (DAMMS) also joined in sending its “wishes to every citizen in Manipur especially the Muslim community.” In its message, DAMMS said, “While we enjoy the celebratory delight of this great occasion, we must not forget our brothers and sisters who are suffering across the world and it is our fervent hope that this Eid will bring smiles to their faces,”

While greeting the people, All India Tanzeem-E-Insaaf (AITI), Manipur State Council prayed that Allah may rid the world of the dreaded COVID-19.
