Headlines 9am: Pakistan celebrates second day of Eidul Azha

Here are the headlines from SAMAA TV’s 9am bulletin:

  • Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the reopening of Hagia Sophia as a mosque in a telephonic conversation on Saturday. The leaders exchanged greetings of Eidul Azha and discussed the coronavirus and the Kashmir issue.
  • Army Chief General Qamar Jawed Bajwa has said that the Pakistan Army is aware of plans to disrupt the peace of the region and is prepared to respond to any attack on it. He spent the first day of Eid with the soldiers of the Khoi Ratta Sector in Rawalpindi. He also expressed his solidarity with the people of Indian-adminstered Kashmir.
  • It has been a year since India repealed articles 35A and 370 of its Constitution, revoking special status granted to Indian-Administered Kashmir. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while addressing a press conference on Friday said that Pakistan is going to highlight Indian atrocities in Kashmir on August 5.
  • The People’s Liberation Army of China completed its 93 years today. A special ceremony for this was arranged by the Pakistan Army at the DHQ headquarters. The army of both countries honoured each other’s national anthems. The move was appreciated by the Chinese Embassy officials.
  • Multiple areas of the province, such as Kamoki, Hafizabad, Shakargarh and Farooqabad, witnessed heavy showers with thunderstorms and lightning on Sunday. The meteorological department has forecast rain in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Islamabad today.
  • Pakistan is celebrating the second day of Eidul Azha today. Residents sacrificed animals and exchanged greetings.
  • The sacrifice was followed by barbecues and parties. Friends and families have gathered to celebrate the occasion with zeal and zest.
  • A bull fell from the second floor of a building in Karachi’s Surjani Town on Saturday. It was being brought down by a crane. It was immediately sacrificed by its owner.
  • The streets and roads in cities across the country are a show of blood stains and animal carcasses as the district administration failed to arrange a proper system to clean the cities.
