          Governor Shri Satya Pal Malik has extended his greetings and best wishes to the people of Goa, and the Muslim community in particular on the auspicious  occasion of Id-ul-Fitr.

In his message, the Governor has said that this festival marks the end of Ramadan which is a holy month of fasting. Id-ul-Fitr is a time for Muslims to give charity to those in need and to celebrate with family and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy. It is a festival of love and goodwill. It gives us a message to love all and hate none. It teaches us brotherhood and peaceful co-existence. It exhorts us to bid goodbye to hatred, jealousy and enmity and bring in an era of love, sympathy and brotherhood.

          The Governor further said, Goa is traditionally a peaceful State, where people of different faiths live in harmony and mutual understanding. I appeal to the people of Goa to steadfastly maintain this rich legacy. Further as the entire Country is facing the pandemic Covid-19, I appeal everyone to celebrate the festival and offer prayer from their respective homes without disregarding the social distancing measures, he concluded.
