AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement on Eid al-Adha:
“Today, Muslims in Texas and around the world mark the end of the Hajj and celebrate Eid al-Adha, a time of joy and celebration.
“As our Texas Muslim communities come together to pray, share a meal, and celebrate life’s blessings, today, we reflect on values like community service, compassion, and generosity. Whether being there for neighbors in need, stepping forward to fight for justice, or leading the push to protect the rights of Texans, Muslim Texans show us the best of those values all year round.
“Texas Muslim communities shape our state and our country for the better every single day, including as leading Democratic voices for change. Texas Democrats will continue to stand with Muslims across our state, and work together for a better future for all of us.
“On behalf of Texas Democrats, I wish everyone celebrating a wonderful Eid al-Adha. Eid Mubarak!”
