New Delhi: Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated across India on Monday, marking the culmination of the fasting month of Ramzan.

"Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated tomorrow (Monday) as the Eid moon was sighted in Bihar, West Bengal, Assam and Uttar Pradesh today," Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, had said on Sunday evening after the moon of 'Shawwal' was sighted.

Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, is observed as a fasting period by Muslims who abstain from food and water from sunrise to sunset.

"On the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, I extend greetings and good wishes to all my fellow citizens, particularly my Muslim brothers and sisters, in India and abroad. May this joyous occasion, which marks the culmination of the period of fasting and prayer during the holy month of Ramzan, bring happiness, peace and prosperity and be an opportunity to rededicate ourselves to serve humanity," President Pranab Mukherjee said.

Wishes also poured on Twitter from political leaders, celebrities and sportspersons.
