I would like to wish the Muslim community Eid Mubarak. Muslims will be coming together with their family and friends in the next few days to celebrate Eid ul Fitr, which marks the end of fasting during the month of Ramadan.
This is a special time for reflection, contemplation and consideration of others. We live in one of the most diverse cities in the world. This is an opportunity to reflect on the benefits this diversity brings to all our lives and how we stand together as one London in the face of those who would see us divided.
I hope Muslims and non-Muslims enjoy this very important day of celebration and that that this will be a joyful occasion for all.
