Pakistan celebrated Eidul Azha Wednesday morning with congregational Eid prayers and animal sacrifice. Prayers were offered for the end of the coronavirus and the prosperity of Pakistan. People were told to ensure precautionary measures such as wearing masks and maintaining social distancing were followed. Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Arif Alvi prayed for the growth and success of the country and encouraged people to follow coronavirus SOPs while performing their religious obligations. "On this auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, I congratulate the entire Pakistani nation and the world of Islam. And I pray to God Almighty to accept the worships and sacrifices of the Pakistani nation and the entire Islamic nation. Amen," the PM said. He added that sacrifice is not just the name of slaughtering an animal but sacrificing one's own desires for the attainment of lofty goals. It does not allow one to deviate from the right path even in difficult situations. Eid Mubarak to all of you my brothers & sisters who read this message & through you to every person I can reach. May Allah forgive us, may He unite us & may He rid us of Covid. May He make Pakistan strong & prosperous.
