The Institute for Iran-Eurasia Studies (IRAS) would like to send warmest wishes to Muslims around the world, celebrating Eid.
This past month, many in the world endured challenges and senseless violence that broke the hearts and tried the souls. Our prayers are with the hundreds of innocent lives, many of them Muslim, taken during the month of Ramadan in places like Tehran, Baghdad, Kabul and elsewhere.
Also, at this time we must keep in our thoughts for those who are unable to celebrate or be with their loved ones. Across the world are people enduring unimaginable suffering and the nations including Iran, Russia, Central Asian and Caucasian states, have to continue to work tirelessly for a swift peaceful resolution.
So as families and friends come together this Eid to share food and presents, to think of others, to mark the end of Ramadan, let’s think about the better region and world, the nations must build together.
Once again, we wish you all a peaceful Eid Mubarak!
