On the occasion of EiD ul Fitr , H.E.Heiko Maas, Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Heiko Maas Greets on Eid ul Fitr . In his message he said, At the end of Ramadan I would like to wish all people of the Muslim faith a blessed Festival of the Breaking of the Fast, a happy Eid ul Fitr.
He said,Ramadan is regarded as a time for reflection and community. In particular, therefore, my thoughts are with the many people around the world who, this year again, have been unable to spend this time peacefully with their families because of war, violence or displacement.
At the same time I am pleased that in Germany, too, the Breaking of the Fast during Ramadan is helping to promote interpersonal contacts across religious boundaries.
