Congratulating the Eid-al-Fitr
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi is the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) on May 12, the eve of Eid-al-Fitr, delivered a message on tweeter congratulating the Eid-al-Fitr to the people of Iran and all Muslims of the world over.
Highlights of Mrs. Rajavi’s speech On May 24, 2020, are included below:
At the beginning of her speech, Mrs. Rajavi reflected on the MEK’s interpretation of Eid-al-Fitr and its promise of victory.
The true meaning of Eid
“For members of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), Eid al-Fitr represents a universal celebration of freedom, and a reunion with the true essence of humanity in confrontation with the rule of the Shah (monarchical dictatorship) and the Sheikh (theocracy),” she said.
“Eid al-Fitr bears the promise of victory and is the indispensable destination of our society, whose anger erupted like a volcano during the November 2019 protests.
“For our people whose discontent and defiance have been accumulating against the mullahs, day by day under the pressure of the coronavirus crisis, and for the rebellious youth and Resistance Units who are counting down the days to overthrow the mullahs’ criminal regime, Eid al-Fitr is the promise of certain triumph,” Mrs. Rajavi continued.
Eid al-Fitr celebrates humanity
“Eid al-Fitr celebrates humanity breaking free from chains of coercion and servitude. It is a celebration of the power of humanity’s willpower and its capabilities,” she emphasized.
She added: “Eid al-Fitr shows that a human being’s fundamental qualities, consciousness, and the ability to choose, can shape his or her behavior. Human beings are not doomed to arrive at a certain destiny. They are not hapless. They are not doomed to be blind followers. They are not doomed to be seized by their instincts. Human beings have an endless power to build a new world and new relations based on emancipation and equality. They are fully capable of fighting exploitative ideologies and those that run counter to the tide of evolution,”
The glorious destiny of human beings
Mrs. Rajavi added: “So, like other Eids, the message of Eid al-Fitr focuses on the essence of humanity and the glorious destiny of human beings. The same humanity that during the Eid of Sacrifice (Eid al-Adha) praises its endless ability to make sacrifices.
“The same humanity that during the month of Ramadan shows the definitive power of its consciousness and willpower pledges to write its own fate during the Night of Destiny, and celebrates its victory in the Eid al-Fitr,”
Fountainhead of liberation and salvation
Mrs. Rajavi concluded her remarks on Eid-al-Fitr with a statement on the ultimate goal of Eid. “According to the (PMOI / MEK Iran) teachings, ‘Every Eid represents a return to the soul and coordinating and aligning with it; an evolutionary and conscious return to the origin and fountainhead of liberation and salvation. It is not about retreating or aimless repetition and it is not a vicious circle. Rather, it is all about a tortuous and blood-drenched struggle and an enduring path to shake off all the semblances of alienation and overcome the obstacles of achieving unity and harmony,”
