MANILA, Philippines — In observance of Eid’l Adha, President Rodrigo Duterte reminded the public that the sacrifices they make have “profound value and meaning” amid the many challenges in life.

“In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, I join our Muslim brothers and sisters in observing Eid’l Adha or the Feast of the Sacrifice,” Duterte said in his message on Tuesday.
