Governor Quinn Statement on the Occasion of Eid al-Adha


            CHICAGO – Governor Pat Quinn today issued the following statement on the occasion of Eid al-Adha:

            “Eid al-Adha – the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’ – is a holiday during which we share with those who are hungry, sick or in need.

“During this special time, we are reminded that sacrifice and compassion are two qualities necessary to make the world a better place and assure no one is left behind.

“In the spirit of humility and warmth, I wish Illinois’ 500,000 Muslim residents and Muslims around the world a blessed Eid.”
