Best wishes ahead of Eid Al-Adha

November 27, 2009 2:02 PM

Speaking ahead of Eid Al-Adha, the Chinese Liberal Democrats and the party Leader, Nick Clegg, have sent out their best wishes, recognising that in China alone there are over 21 million Muslims.

Allan Siao Ming Witherick who recently visited China with the British Council said:

"We often forget that China, like Europe and indeed the UK, is filled with many different religions and beliefs who co-exist in harmony and that our Chinese community in the UK equally reflects the vast diversity that exists in China itself."

Nick Clegg, Leader of the Liberal Democrats sent out greetings this year saying:

"Eid Al-Adha is preceded by the day of `Arafah and is one of the important days of Hajj. Eid Al-Adha is a joyous time and reminds us of all of the importance of hard work, togetherness and family.

I send my warmest wishes at this very special time."
