Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party, said:

Eid al-Adha is a very special time for Muslims in the UK and all across the world, and a time to celebrate the values of Islam.

It is a chance to show respect for sacrifice, to demonstrate charity to one another and to join together to reflect and to consider our duties to those around us as well as to ourselves.

On this special day, I would like to pay tribute to British Muslims for the contributions they make to our communities, our economy and our way of life, and I would like to extend my best wishes to all those who have embarked this year on the holy pilgrimage of Hajj.

Eid Mubarak!
