Governor of Goa Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari has extended his warm greetings and best wishes to the people of Goa particularly the Muslim community on the auspicious festive occasion of Id-ul-Fitr.
In his message, the Governor says this festival marks the end of Ramadan which is a holy month of fasting. Ramadan is not only about refraining from food and drink, but is also about abstaining from evil thoughts, words and actions. Prophet Mohammad preached the eternal values of love, peace, brotherhood and compassion. In the present troubled world, let us practice these noble principles in the best interests of national solidarity and social harmony.
This year while rejoicing on this auspicious occasion, let us remember to strictly follow all the health protocols and guidelines and to stay safe. May this Id-ul-Fitr bring renewed peace, prosperity and happiness to one and all, the Governor added, as informed by the Department of Information and Publicity.
