The goal of the Eid Milan event, according to the organizers, is to promote universal human values, particularly the country’s Ganga-Jamani tehzib. Many speakers emphasized the country’s religious and cultural diversity, stating that people of all religions have lived here together for generations, their skin is the same colour, and their ancestors are the same. They claimed that no other country in the world has such diversity; this diversity is the country’s beauty and reward, which we must all endeavour to preserve.
The Minhaj Foundation promotes healthy relations amongst people of different faiths. According to the convener of the foundation, Eid is the reward for fasting during Ramadan, and it is critical that we must comprehend the essence of Ramadan and fasting. One of the most effective methods to bridge the gap between affluent and poor during Ramadan is to feel hungry. Be hungry to understand what hunger is all about, and be patient while doing good to close the gap. Love should be allowed to blossom.
