PM Modi extends wishes to Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu on Eid

Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended greetings to Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu and the people of Maldives on the occasion of Eid Al Fitr. In his message, PM Modi noted that the cultural and civilizational linkages shared by India and Maldives go back in time.

PM Modi’s greetings to Mohamed Muizzu have been shared by the Indian High Commission in Maldives on social media platform X. While sharing PM Modi’s message on X, Indian High Commission in Maldives stated, “On the auspicious occasion of Eid-Al-Fitr, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi extended warm greetings to His Excellency President of Maldives Dr. M Muizzu, the Government & the people of the Republic of Maldives.”

Eid ul-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic lunar calendar. The festival is of great significance due to the moon sighting which has been part of Islamic culture for a long time. It is believed that Prophet Muhammad used to wait for news of sightings of the crescent moon as it indicated the beginning of a new month.

Ending the holy month of Ramzan and starting a new spiritual journey also marks the beginning of a new Islamic year. Eid-ul-Fitr marks the month-long Ramzan fasting and the beginning of Shawwal which is the tenth month per the Islamic calendar.
