Governor greets people on Id-ul-Zuha

Governor Prof.Jagdish Mukhi has extended his greetings to the people of Assam on the occasion of the holy festival of Islam Id-ul-Zuha.

In a statement here on Tuesday, Prof. Mukhi said, “I extend my heartiest greetings and warm wishes to the Muslim brethren of the state on the occasion of  Id-ul-Zuha. May the festival augur peace and motivate all of us to embrace each other with the feeling of brotherhood. On this occasion, I appeal to the people to celebrate the festival with a renewed sense of sacrifice for the larger societal goal and work for strengthening the bond of co-existence to make our life more beautiful and harmonious”.

He further said that the celebrations of Id-ul-Zuha must fortify the long- standing tradition of amity and communal harmony apart from strengthening the existing bond of universal brotherhood  so that no untoward elements can create any dent in the peaceful co-existence of all the people of Assam.  In view of COVID, the Governor also appealed to all to celebrate the festival by adhering to COVID appropriate behaviour.
