Eid-ul-Fitr is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity“, while Fiṭr means “to break the fast“; and so, the holiday symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. It is celebrated after the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan, on the first day of Shawwal.

Islamophobia is what stops Muslim students from furthering their studies in Western countries. But Australians seem to be friendly and open-minded. They have a culture of warmly greeting others who cross their paths, which often makes me feel welcomed and at ease.
“Sometimes, I do get a little uncomfortable when we have to discuss the issues involving ISIS, jihadists or sharia law but there are also topics in Islam which I choose not to comment on due to my lack of competence to expatiate on the matter or to simply avoid any misunderstandings about Islam.” Says Siti Mohksin. But the university tries to echo the voices of their Muslim students and makes their point of view seem relevant.
