Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao conveyed his greetings to Muslims on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr.
The Chief Minister expressed hope that the end of the sacred Ramzan month would usher in happiness among the people. He appealed to the people to celebrate Eid amidst communal harmony and religious tolerance, and show the "great Ganga-Jamuna tehzeeb" of Telangana State. He reminded people it was in the same spirit that the State government had organized a Dawat-e-Iftar and distributed clothes to poor Muslims during the Ramzan month.
Governor E S L Narasimhan, too, extended greetings and good wishes to the Muslims in the State.
"The teachings of the Holy Quran have shaped the lives of the people right since the advent of the Prophet. The holy Ramzan is a reminder to us of the purpose of life as ordained by God, and that only through rigorous self-discipline is it possible to realize that life is eternal. On this holy Eid-ul-Fitr day, let us redeem our pledge to respect the dignity of the human being, the sanctity of life and the solemnity of all faiths," Narasimhan said.
Leader Of Opposition in the Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir, too, greeted the people of Telangana, particularly the Muslim community.
Ali said that the Muslims were devoted to the Almighty for one month and had observed fasts and offered special "Tarabi namaz" for their own welfare and also the welfare of the state. Islam preached brotherhood and asked people to understand the difficulties faced by their neighbours and lend them a helping hand. Roza (fasting) helped control hunger and advocated sympathy towards the sufferings of the poor.
