Eid-ul-Adha wishes from the Prime Minister


I am pleased to send this message to the Muslim community in Australia and around the world on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.
The story of Abraham is shared by three of the world’s great faiths: Islam, Christianity
and Judaism.
Eid al-Adha is an occasion to reflect on the faith and devotion of Abraham. His strong
values are universal.
In homes and mosques around the country, people will come together with family and
friends to commemorate Eid al-Adha. It is an opportunity to honour faith and to cherish
the freedom to practice one’s faith.
Religious freedom has always been a settled part of the Australian tradition. Different
religious communities should respect each other. People of different faiths – and none –
should respect each other.
Muslim Australians are an important part of Team Australia. Together, we will continue
to strengthen our future as a free, fair and multicultural society; and a beacon of hope
and optimism for people from right around the world.
I send you my best wishes for an enjoyable and peaceful celebration.
