Taipei, May 23 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) wished Muslims in Taiwan and around the world Eid Mubarak on Saturday, a traditional Muslim greeting reserved for use on the festival of Ei d al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.

"This is a time to gather with family and friends and I hope everyone will enjoy the festival and celebrate in safety," Tsai tweeted.

I want to wish our Muslim friends in #Taiwan and around the world #EidMubarak. This is a time to gather with family & friends, & I hope everyone will enjoy the festival & celebrate in safety.

Taiwan is a society that appreciates multiculturalism and freedom of religion, she also wrote on her Facebook page.

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, places that normally organize activities to celebrate Eid al-Fitr have been greatly reduced in Taiwan this year, the president noted, expressing hope that the pandemic will soon go away so that everyone can return to their normal lives.
