President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

This year’s Eid Al-Fitr is still celebrated amidst COVID-19 pandemic.

We also still have to be patient and refrain ourselves because we cannot stay in touch physically with family and friends.

It is very hard indeed, but we have no choice. We must prioritize the health and safety first. So that as soon as possible we can be free from the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the Bogor Presidential Palace, I wish you a happy Eid Al-Fitr 1442 Hijri, let us forgive each other.

First Lady (Iriana Joko Widodo)

I also wish you a happy Eid al-Fitr, let us forgive each other.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Hopefully this festive day will become a momentum for all of us to rise up and win against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wassalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. (EW/LW)
