Vice President Hamid Ansari today greeted Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leader Shahnawaz Hussain and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on the occasion of Eid.


Ansari said, "It's a day of happiness, everyone should celebrate it together."

Extending greetings of the festival, Shahnawaz Hussain said, "I hope this Eid brings happiness to everyone, it is a day for everyone to come together."

"It's the first Eid after Modi came to power, it is a day to start things anew," he added.

The festival of Eid-ul-Fitr is being celebrated across the country today, with prayers being offered at various historical mosques like the Jama Masjid in the national capital.

Eid-ul-fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramdan. Ramadan is the ninth of 12 months in the Islamic calendar. The month honours the Angel Gabriel's revelation of the Koran, the holy scripture of Islam, to the Prophet Mohammed at a meditation retreat in a cave about 1,400 years ago.
