My Eid message

On behalf of the Labour Party, I want to send my best wishes to all Muslims in the United Kingdom celebrating Eid al-Adha.

I know this is a special time for Muslims, and it is an opportunity to celebrate the values of Islam. Values of family, of community and of charity.

At a time when so many people around the world are facing such hardship, these values seem more important than ever.

I also want to take this chance to recognise the enormous contributions Muslims across Britain make to our country, to our communities and to our way of life.

I wish you all a peaceful and happy Eid.

Eid Mubarak.
