"Eid is a time for families and friends. A time of joy and happiness. As families and friends come together in celebration, I want to recognise the immense contribution that British Muslims make to our country. And I want to say a particular thank you to those Muslims who have helped to make the London Olympics so successful. From those who volunteered and gave visitors such a warm welcome to our country. To members of our armed forces who have helped to keep us safe. To our medal winners who have won a place in our nation’s heart. Peace and unity are the spirit of Eid and I am proud of the way Britain has demonstrated these values to the world during the Olympics. So to Muslims around the world on this very important day of celebration, I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Eid."
