Srinagar: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has won hearts after she greeted Muslims in New Zealand on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. In her message to Muslim community, Jacinda says, “Asslamamuaaikum. I like to pass on my warmest wishes to everyone celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr.”

She added that she knows that this year the celebration would be little different than usual.

“This is a difficult time for everyone including our Kiwi Muslims and I’ve been pleased to see New Zealand is responding with unity, kindness and generosity.” She urged all to continue with the same spirit even after Ramzan and Eid.

The Federation of Islamic Association of New Zealand (FIANZ) announced that the moon of Shawwal has been sighted and Eid will be celebrated on Sunday, May 24.

Jacinda noted, “Although you might not be able to come together and connect as you normally would. As we all stay in our bubbles. I wish you all the very best on this special occasion. Eid Mubarak!”

Jacinda Ardern earned worldwide praise as a global icon over the years into the political arena. From carrying her 3-month-old daughter to the United Nations General Assembly in 2018, to her compassionate response to the Christchurch mosque shootings, Jacinda has won hearts.
