Message from Bill Shorten MP

I would like to extend my warmest wishes to all who are celebrating the joyous occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the month of fasting for Muslims in Australia and around the world. It is a time of spiritual reflection, prayer and service to those less fortunate.

As the new moon rises, and over the next three days, thousands of Muslims will come together to celebrate the bonds of faith, family and community with food, festivals and gifts.

The principles of compassion, justice and equality are an integral part of the Islamic faith. They are principles that shape our nation and cultivate a sense of unity and acceptance in modern, multicultural Australia.

May the spirit of love, giving and respect be the beacon which shines above us all on this joyous occasion, and may it light up our path as prosperous nation.

Eid Mubarak.
