I would like to wish Muslims across the country, and indeed across the world, Eid Mubarak on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr.
Muslims make a huge contribution to British society – in business, in public service, and in enriching our culture too.
The spirit of Ramadan and Eid hold messages about family and charity from which all of us should learn.
The dignity and calm shown by the Muslim community in Birmingham following the tragic deaths of three men during the riots moved the whole country.
I wish you the best for the prayers and celebrations of the coming days. Once again, Eid Mubarak.
