Meanwhile, Chief Minister Pema Khandu today extended his warm greetings to the Muslim community of the world celebrating Eid ul-Adha or Bakra-Eid as it is called in India.
“On the auspicious occasion of Eid ul-Adha, we must remember the act of sacrifice by Ibrahim who offered his son Ismael for sacrifice to God,” said the CM, in a separate message.
"His willingness to sacrifice his son impressed Allah, and replaced him with a lamb instead for sacrifice," he added.
The Chief Minister said that we must take it upon ourselves to offer our services for the growth of the state and nation.
"Although Covid-19 has dramatically affected our celebrations, the spirit of Eid should not be hampered," he further added.
