“As Muslims, try reflecting on the salient lessons learnt in the holy month, for the betterment of the society.
“As usual, this Eid-el Fitr signals the end of Ramadan. It is therefore a period of feasting, celebration and prayers to the Almighty.
“We should celebrate the occasion with moderation, while reflecting deeply on the useful lessons of the season which includes love, forgiveness and ensuring peace with all men,” she said.
“While we celebrate, I urge that we comply with the lockdown order, especially restriction on movements, and ban on religious and social gatherings of any sort.
“These safety measures, though very inconvenient, are for our own good as they are necessary to keep us safe from the deadly coronavirus,” she said.
