President greets nation on Eid-ul-Azha

New Delhi, Oct 15 : President Pranab Mukherjee Tuesday greeted the nation on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, which will be celebrated Wednesday.

In his message, the president said: "On the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, I extend my greetings and good wishes to all fellow citizens and, in particular, to my Muslim brothers and sisters."

Stressing the need to "emulate" Prophet Abraham by following the path of "selfless sacrifice and forgiveness", the president said "the spirit of sacrifice and service" is the essence of Eid-ul-Azha.

"We must derive inspiration from the observance of this day and strive to foster universal brotherhood. On the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, let us remind ourselves of the unity of mankind and resolve to strive for communal harmony and peace," said the president.

"May the festival knit all the people of India in a celebration of our composite culture," he said.
