2012-10-26 12:22

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has sent well wishes to the Muslim community celebrating Eid-ul-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) on Friday.

"As you offer your sacrifices, during this spiritual time I wish that the Almighty answers your prayers and fulfils all your dreams on this Eid-ul-Adha and always," the presidency said in a statement.

Muslims use the holiday to reflect on the year along with its challenges, and to also give thanks.

    I don't think he should mention the Almighty. Instead he should have told them to keep paying their taxes because after being re-elected in december he wants a helicopter and a plane.

    A real leader is what the president has done, for wishing Muslims a good holiday in this country, this shows clearly that he is a true leader a leader for all South Africans living in it, irrespective of colour and religion. In Africa and other parts of the world we see what is happening in Muslims countries, life is not good at all, so I salute too all South African Muslims for dedication and love they show for this country and patriotism, South Africa is a peaceful country.

      Its not going to be peaceful for long as we are plunged into a collapse because of governments greed. People with no jobs will take to the streets to feed their families. But government is sitting pretty with our millions and their kids at private schools. Tighten your belt and prepare yourself for a very tough time.
