President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday greeted the nation on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, President urged people to 'work together for unity and fraternity in our shared society.'

"Eid Mubarak to all fellow citizens, especially to our Muslim brothers and sisters in India and abroad. On this special day of Eid-ul-Zuha, we celebrate the sacred spirit of sacrifice. Let us resolve to work together for unity and fraternity in our shared society," he wrote.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also took to social media to send his warm greetings to the people of the country on the occasion. "Best wishes on Id-ul-Zuha. May this day deepen the spirit of compassion and brotherhood in our society," he tweeted.

Eid al-Adha, also known as "Sacrifice Feast" and 'Bakri Eid' honours the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, as an act of obedience to God's command. Muslims sacrifice a sheep or goat and share the meat with their family, neighbours and the poor on this occasion. (ANI)
