Message of the Co-President of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), Lahur Sheikh Jangi
The Co-President of the PUK, Lahur Sheikh Jangi, congratulated the people of Kurdistan in a message on the occasion of Eid Al-Fitr during which he said:
In the Name of God, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful,
On the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, I extend my sincere greetings to all our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Kurdistan Region, Iraq, and the rest of the world, to the families of our honorable martyrs, the heroic Peshmerga, the medical staff, the internal security forces, the Counter-Terrorism Group, the political prisoners, the people with special needs, and the rest of the people of Kurdistan, hoping that this feast brings prosperity and happiness for our people. It is noteworthy that Muslims fast and pray in the holy month and take it as an opportunity to review themselves, purify their hearts, renew their life, and make Eid an occasion for tolerance and salvation. On this day, as we celebrate, our country is facing the terror of ISIS, Kurds are not united, they face many problems and crises and our citizens in Kirkuk and the disputed territories are expecting more from us and our civil servants are waiting to receive their salaries without reduction.
The political parties should take advantage of this Eid for tolerance and resolving differences between them in a patriotic spirit, away from political stagnation and accusations against one another. They should take advantage for the sake of national unity, peace, and harmony, to serve the people of Kurdistan, solve the outstanding problems, face the challenges and crises, and provide welfare and a worthy life for people. We at the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s (PUK) Presidency, assure our citizens in Kirkuk, Khanaqin and the disputed territories that the policy and programs of the PUK are to restore balance and save them from the difficult situation they are in, and we reaffirm that results of our efforts will be seen after Eid. May God spare the people and Kurdistan from any hardship and problem, and spare all of humanity from the coronavirus, and accept all the fast and prayers of the Muslims. I wish you all a happy Eid.
