“Watch Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s message wishing all those celebrating a joyful Eid.”

In the video message, Trudeau said, “Usually this is a time to gather with friends and family for large meals and to share snacks and sweets.”

“But with Covid-19… we will once again need to find new ways to celebrate and also recognize the many contributions that Muslims have made…”

Eid Mubarak: PM says we must celebrate this Eid in ‘quiet manner with families’ for two reasons

“Eid Mubarak to our Muslim Ummah. This is a very different Eid which we must celebrate in a quiet manner with our families, for 2 imp reasons. One: there is the Corona pandemic. In Pak[istan] we are now again beginning to control the spread so it is vital for our ppl to observe SOPs,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Two, equally critical is the need for us all to show solidarity with the Kashmiris & Palestinians who are suffering oppression by Occupation Powers in complete violation of their international guaranteed basic human rights.”
