Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the nation on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr and wished the spirit of peace and brotherhood may prevail.

“Eid-ul-Fitr greetings! May this auspicious day further the spirit of peace and brotherhood in our society,” Modi said in a tweet on Sunday night.

Eid-ul-Fitr translates as “the festival of breaking the fast”.

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims perform one of the five pillars of Islam -- the fast. -
