Eid is a blissful moment, says Irrfan

Mumbai, July 7 (IANS) Actor Irrfan Khan, who recently created a stir after making stern remarks on a Muslim tradition of sacrifice, says Eid is a blissful moment.

Irrfan spoke about the essence of fasting during Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

“All festivals have some meaning and purpose. We should try to find out that. Eid is a blissful moment like all festivals, where people give out some portion from their entire year’s earning to some needy people,” he said at the musical reality show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa” set, which he visited to promote his forthcoming film “Madaari”.

“The purpose is to share. It could be your earning or anything… monetary or maybe your good thoughts so that equality can be spread out in your surroundings,” he added.

“After a month of praying and meditating, this is the time of celebration. We hope our prayer is accepted by the almighty and our souls are purified.”

The actor recently condemned the fact that animals are being slaughtered in the name of Qurbani. His remarks did not go down well with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board.
