Green Party Statement for Eid-al-Fitr

OTTAWA – Tonight’s new moon heralds the beginning of Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim festival that marks the end of Ramadan and ushers in the month of Shawwal. 

“This year’s celebration of Eid al-Fitr will once again unfold amidst the challenges of pandemic restrictions,” said Green Party Leader Annamie Paul. “Despite this, we hope that Muslims in Canada and around the world will find safe, creative ways to gather virtually with friends and loved ones to break the fast with their first daytime meal in a month – a traditional breakfast.

“On behalf of everyone at the Green Party of Canada, we wish you Eid Mubarak!”
