Issue 282, Friday 26 October 2012 - 10 Dhu al-Hijjah 1433
Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband,
On behalf of the Labour Party, I want to send my best wishes to all Muslims here in the United Kingdom celebrating Eid.
Eid al-Adha is a good time to reflect on the positive contribution made by British Muslims to our national life. I know that many thousands of British Muslims are performing the Hajj pilgrimage this year, as they do every year. And throughout the year many thousands more Muslims through their community work and charity live out the values which are also at the heart of the Labour party: the value of community, the conviction that we can achieve more together than we do alone, and the belief that we must look after each other. These are values which we must continue to keep at the heart of our work.
I wish you all Eid Mubarak.
