Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili congratulated Muslims on Kurban Bayrami, the second of two religious holidays celebrated annually worldwide by the Muslim community.
“Kurban Bayrami is the festivity of charity and the victory of goodwill over evil. This day has a long history, and as the idea of humanism, it gained more and more importance over the centuries,” he said, wishing Muslims peace and welfare.
Kurban Bayrami, also called the Feast of the Sacrifice, honored the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his promised son.
The holiday is celebrated 70 days after Ramazan Bayram, a month of fasting, and lasts for three days. Muslims visit relatives and help neighbors and socially vulnerable families during these days.
