Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, while felicitating the nation on Eidul Fitr, has lauded the services of Pakistan Army, police, Frontier Constabulary and other law enforcement agencies whose jawans (personnel) are working day and night for the defence of the country.
“On the day of Eid, we cannot forget those who, for the sake of country and despite being far from their dear ones, are performing their duties, spend their festivals in protecting our joys, ensuring law and order and eliminating terrorism. I on my own behalf and on behalf of the countrymen attribute all the Eid delights to them,” the prime minister said in his message on the auspicious occasion of Eidul Fitr.
“I pray to Allah Almighty to bless them with success at every front and they celebrate the next festival with their family and dear ones. Specially, the jawans engaged in Zarb-e-Azb deserve praise from the whole nation. The whole nation salutes their spirit,” he added.
The prime minister felicitated the Islamic world in general and the nation in particular on the happy occasion of Eidul Fitr.
“These are the blessings of Allah Almighty, Who provided us with an opportunity to benefit from the bounties and advantages of Ramzanul Mubarik. May Allah accept our reverences during the holy month, bless us with His benevolence and forgiveness, and save us from the blaze of hell,” he added.
The prime minister said, “We, today, on this auspicious occasion, pledge not to become part of any kind of negative activity and will continue to work for the progress and prosperity of the country and nation.”
“We should also pledge that we will promote among us the teachings of tolerance, harmony, forgiveness, love and affection, patience and generosity. It is only possible when we lead a life based on the golden principles of Islam and control the negative attitudes of jealousy and hatred. This is the right path, by following which we can achieve success in this world and hereafter,” he maintained.
The premier said, “The enemies of Pakistan are aware of the fact that our real power lies in our civilization and culture. We love each other and are capable of being united in every hour of trial. We can be above board of political and religious differences. On the occasion of Eid, we have to demonstrate it practically.”
“I hope that you will meet you relatives, neighbours and others living around you by keeping aside the political and religious divides and will make this Eid occasion the day of national unity. May the blessings of Allah Almighty are with you,” concluded the premier.
