I am aware that Eid al-Fitr is a special time of year for Muslim communities in the UK and all across the world. It marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan – the month of fasting for Muslims, which is also the month of charity, family, contemplation, and recitation of the Qur’an.
I know Eid al-Fitr is a joyous occasion but also a day of gratitude for the everyday blessings we enjoy in life. It brings together friends and families, and encourages Muslims to continue the teachings from the month of Ramadan throughout the rest of the year- particularly the lessons of giving, community and charity. These shared values are reflected in the generosity that British Muslims have shown over the years in helping those less fortunate than themselves across the world.
At this special time for Muslim communities we can also reflect on the tremendous contribution of British Muslims to British life over many decades.
Eid al Fitr is a festival that we can all learn from.
My best wishes to you and your family. Eid Mubarak

Even some Turks are disgusted at the barbaric Eid slaughter in the streets

The public sacrifice of animals marking the first day of the festival of Eid al-Adha provoked countrywide protests in Turkey.
We don’t want this kind of thing happening on EU streets….Oh wait! it already is!
During Eid-al-Adha, an estimated 20,000 sheep are slaughtered in Brussels, of which less than 10% in official establishments. Secretary Kir told the Brussels Parliament that the religious beliefs of the Muslims have to be taken into account. The authorities deliberately failed to interfere, even in situations such as the one on this picture, taken last Tuesday in the Brussels suburb of Neder-over-Heembeek. This is Brussels, the capital of Europe, in the year 2006. At present 14 of the 26 representatives of the Parti Socialiste, the largest party in the Brussels regional parliament, are Muslim immigrants (ten of Moroccan origin, two Turkish, one Tunisian and one from the West-African state of Guinea).
We expect this kind of behaviour from Muslims who don’t seem to want to move beyond the 7th Century, but we expect our elected leaders to condemn it instead of lying in an effort to islamise our countries.
In England the establishment has given our country over to islam and muslims. The Prime Minister would have us believe Islam is an honourable religion while islamic clerics all over the world preach jihad.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Church of England, has suggested that sharia law is inevitable in England.
The Lord Chief Justice (the most senior judge in England) has suggested sharia could play a role in English and UK law.
ENOUGH OF THIS!
If you are English, Scottish or Welsh then make it plain to our miserable excuse of a Prime Minister that Eid is far from a joyous occasion to the hundreds of thousands of animals barbarically slaughtered in Europe, often on public streets.
Write to national and local newspapers about the barbarism and demand that it be banned from British life.
Contact your local mosque and let it be known how you feel about Eid “celebrations” and sharia slaughter.
Stop islamisation has become the catchphrase in Europe. NO SHARIA HERE! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
