Prime Minister Turnbull's Eid Al-Adha message

I send my warm greetings to Muslims in Australia who are celebrating Eid al-Adha.

During the Eid al-Adha celebration, Muslims commemorate the prophethood of Abraham through acts of charity and praying for those who are less fortunate.

Australia is the most successful and harmonious multicultural society in the world.

Our Nation’s cultural, religious and linguistic diversity is one of our greatest assets.

The Australian Muslim community is  an integral part of an Australian society which is built on the essential foundation of mutual respect and understanding for all.

Once again, I express my best wishes to Australians of Islamic faith on this special occasion.
