He said, “After observing an austere and highly disciplined schedule during the holy month of fasting, Ramzan, Eid is welcomed as the occasion full of celebration, food and fun. For every Muslim the festival symbolizes breaking the fast and everything that’s evil within us. I spent the entire day with my family and friends. On this day, many friends from the neighborhood and other areas come to wish us and also celebrated the special day with us.”
