WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): Greeting Muslims across the globe on the occasion of Eidul Fitr, US President Barack Obama on Sunday said the festival celebrated common values that united humanity and reinforced obligations people of all faiths had towards each other.

"As Muslims throughout the United States and around the worldinfo-icon celebrate Eidul Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families," Obama said in a statement.
"This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate," he said.

In the US, he said, Eid also reminded them of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of the nation and strengthening the core of democracy.

 "That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities," Obama said.
"On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration.  Eid Mubarak," said the president.
