Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau congratulated Muslims in Canada and around the world on Eid Al-Adha.
"This is a moment for prayer, sharing, sacrifice, and compassion. From morning prayers to sharing meals, to giving back to those in need, it’s an important time. And for all of us, it’s a chance to reflect on the contributions of Muslim Canadians across the country. Guided by values of respect, empathy, and service, you step up, and you help shape our communities for the better," Trudeau said.
"I hope that you find peace and meaning through the practice of your traditions, that you can come together with the family and friends you love, and that you can celebrate your community and all it has done for our country."
In his message, the Canadian prime minister reiterated his commitment to building a better Canada where everyone can feel welcome, safe, and respected, saying that there is no place for discrimination in any form in the country.
Trudeau took the opportunity to condemn the manifestations of Islamophobia in Canada and the Government of Canada's continued fight against this phenomenon, including the appointment of the country's first special representative to fight Islamophobia.
