Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the nation on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr and said he wished for citizens to overcome the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic soon and work towards their humanitarian goals. Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated by Muslims across the world on the last day of the holy month of Ramzan.

"Best wishes on the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. Praying for everyone’s good health and well-being. Powered by our collective efforts, may we overcome the global pandemic and work towards furthering human welfare. Eid Mubarak!" PM Modi tweeted.

Ramzan, the month-long fasting period, starts and ends with the sighting of the moon. It is celebrated every ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The festival was celebrated this year amid the coronavirus pandemic, with Muslims across the world observing Roza, or fasting from the time the sun rises to when it sets.

President Ram Nath Kovind also wished everyone on the festival and said that everyone this year should resolve to overcome the Covid-19 crisis by following preventive guidelines and dedicate themselves to the service of humanity.

"Eid Mubarak to all fellow citizens! This festival is an occasion to strengthen the spirit of fraternity & rededicate ourselves to the service of humanity. Let us resolve to deal with Covid-19 by following the guidelines and to work for the well-being of the society & the country," he tweet
