"This festival epitomises the noble values of sacrifice, trust and forgiveness".

Vice President Naidu, in a message, said that Id-ul-Zuha symbolises the spirit of sacrifice and truthfulness.

"Greetings to all my fellow citizens, especially to my Muslim brothers and sisters in India and overseas on Idu'l Zuha", Kovind said a tweet. "May this day be filled with blessings and bring peace and prosperity for all".

Talking about the composite culture, he wished that the festival inspire all to work towards the well-being of all mankind.
