PM's message for Eid

Prime Minister David Cameron expressed his warm wishes to Muslim people in the United Kingdom, to mark the start of the festival of Eid ul Fitr and the end of Ramadan.

With the devastating floods in Pakistan still fresh in everyone's minds, the PM called Eid "a time for celebration but also a time for contemplation".

He said:

"As families, friends and communities come together around the United Kingdom to celebrate the end of the Holy month of Ramadan and the start of Eid ul Fitr, I want to send you all my warmest best wishes.

"Eid is a special time, a time for celebration but also a time for contemplation.

"The terrible scenes of devastation in Pakistan have shocked us all. I am hugely impressed by how we in the UK have responded to this tragedy, with communities up and down the country coming together to mobilise support.

"As Eid begins we should enjoy this very special time but our thoughts will of course turn to those less fortunate.

Eid Mubarak."
