Obama greet Muslims on Eid-ul-Adha

US Prez and the First Lady extended their greetings for a happy Eid-ul-Adha to Muslims worldwide.

Washington: US President Barack Obama and
the First Lady Michelle extended their greetings for a happy
Eid-ul-Adha to Muslims worldwide and wished safe travel to
those performing Hajj.

"This year, nearly three million pilgrims from more than
160 countries - including the United States - have gathered in
Mecca and neighbouring sites to perform the Hajj rituals and
stand together in prayer," Obama said.

"On Eid, Muslims around the world will commemorate
Abraham`s willingness to sacrifice his son, and distribute
food to those less fortunate - a reminder of the shared values
and the common roots of three of the world`s major religions,"
he said.

"On behalf of the American people, we extend our best
wishes during this Hajj season Eid Mubarak and Hajj
Mabrour," Obama added.
