A number of Muslims sacrificed their animals as part of Eidul Azha celebrations across Pakistan on Wednesday.
The Eid is celebrated to commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (AS).
The day began with Eid congregations at mosques and Eidgahs in all the cities, towns and villages across Pakistan. The ulema and khateebs delivered sermons, highlighting the significance of the day and philosophy of the sacrifice.
In line with the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), the Muslims then slaughtered their animals as a sacrifice for Allah. The meat of sacrificed animals is distributed among relatives and the poor.
The federal and provincial governments ensured security arrangements across the country to avoid any untoward incident on the public holiday. The civic authorities of different cities and towns have also made special arrangements for the disposal of offal and other solid waste during the three days of Eid.
