Eid al- Fitr Celebration and Gathering: Mackenzie Health, Richmond Hill

Eid al- Fitr Celebration and Gathering: Mackenzie Health, Richmond Hill, Ontario - July 21, 2015 -

Speech By Vinay Khetia

Having an event such as this celebrates the diversity and pluralism which is so common to Toronto, the GTA and York Region. So I would like to begin by thanking the organizers and the officials at Mackenzie Health for facilitating this event.

The day of Eid al-Fitr, literary translated as a Celebratory feast is a celebration which takes places at the conclusion of the month of Ramadan. The import and significance of the day of Eid can only be appreciated by grasping what it is that Muslims are actually celebrating on the day of Eid which was this past Saturday.
