Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sent a message to his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina, extending his warmest greetings to the people and the government of Bangladesh on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Azha, to be celebrated on Saturday.


“On the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, I would like to extend my warmest greetings to the people and the government of Bangladesh,” PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim quoted the Indian premier’s message as saying on Friday.


Modi said the festival of Eid-ul-Azha, which is also celebrated in several parts of India, reminds “us of our deep historical and cultural links”.


“We hope that this festival will further enhance the spirit of peace and tolerance in our respective societies and promote fraternal ties between our two countries,” he added.


The Indian premier wished Sheikh Hasina and all Bangladeshi brothers and sisters good health and prosperity on the occasion of the Eid-ul-Azha, the press secretary said.


While talking about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Modi highly praised the measures being taken in Bangladesh under the able leadership of Sheikh Hasina.


“As both our countries continue to deal with the COVlD-19 situation, we appreciate the steps being taken in Bangladesh under your able leadership,” he said.


The Indian prime minister expressed his confidence that Bangladesh will tide over these challenging times. “We remain available to support your efforts in any way, including through capacity-building in the health sector,” he said.
