MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo on Tuesday called for solidarity and shared humanity as she joined the Muslim community in the observance of Eid’l Adha.

“As we mark the Feast of Sacrifice this year, let us come together in solidarity, shared humanity, and the common good. This day is a celebration of faith and its ability to endow us with the courage to meet any challenge,” Robredo said in her Eid’l Adha message.


“As we have seen countless times during this pandemic, there are more things that bring us together than tear us apart – kindness, compassion, and the genuine desire for a world where people of all faiths thrive and flourish under a banner of hope,” she added.


This aspiration, Robredo said, may face a long road ahead but she expressed confidence that Filipinos have the determination to reach this nonetheless.

“Let us hold fast to these values as we journey towards the vision of a better normal,” she said.

“Though the road may be long, I know that the Filipino has the resolve to reach this aspiration,” she added.

Last week, President Rodrigo Duterte declared July 20 a holiday nationwide in observance of Eid’l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice.

Eid’l Adha is one of the two most important holidays in the Muslim calendar.

Eid’l Adha commemorates the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son at the command of Allah.
