Kyrgyz Muslims pray in central Bishkek on June 25, 2017, during celebrations of Eid-ul-Fitr marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramazan.

Prime Minister Modi took to twitter to convey his Eid wishes to the nation.

"This festival of happiness enhances the spirit of mutual brotherhood as well as strengthening social unity".

Now, not every Muslim opened the Eid al-Fitr holiday Sunday.

Meanwhile, President Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia have issued separate messages greeting people on the occasion.

The holiday celebrates the conclusion of 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

Eid-Al-Fitr may seem on the surface to be of religious significance to Muslims only but the Festival offers opportunities for people of different backgrounds to come together.

In his Eid'l Fitr message, Duterte noted that the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal always brings great joy to the Muslim brothers and sisters. Now it is time for Eid.

A group of women pose for a picture, before the start of Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramazan at Luneta Park in Metro Manila, Philippines.

Earlier, President Pranab Mukherjee also shared his greeting on this auspicious festival.

"On the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, I extend greetings and good wishes to all my fellow citizens, particularly my Muslim brothers and sisters, in India and overseas".

"I firmly believe that this festival that celebrates humanity and goodness, will bolster peace, brotherhood and happiness in the Valley", he added.
