“We bow our heads in gratitude to Allah on this day for blessing us with the bounties of the holy month of Ramazan. For the Muslims it is a thanksgiving day and I wish to greet Muslims throughout the world in general and of Pakistan in particular on this has been stated by Chairman Pakistan Peoples’ Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in his message on the eve of Eid ul Fitr today.A festive occasion like this however has relevance only when festivities and celebrations are genuinely shared with many he said and called for helping the poor and the needy.
“We should reach out to the poor and the needy, the internally displaced persons and all those who have been hit by militancy and violence in one way or the other”.
“On this Eid let us also spare a thought for those members of our armed forces, the police, the law enforcing agencies and civilians who laid down their lives in the fight against militants so that we may truly celebrate Eid in peace.
“May Allah in His infinite mercy grant our supplications and guide us to imbibe the spirit of Ramazan throughout the year and to employ that spirit in rebuilding the lives of the people disrupted by extremists and militants, natural disasters and internal displacements”.
