The Christian community across Pakistan, like other parts of the world, is celebrating Christmas on Monday (today) with traditional zeal and enthusiasm.

Special programmes will be held in the churches across the country including Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, and Peshawar to celebrate the festival.

Worshippers, donned in festive attire, gather in churches for prayer services alongside their families.

Churches and streets across the nation are adorned with festive lights and trees, while bakeries offer custom Christmas cakes. Markets showcase Christmas merchandise, and many children embrace the spirit by dressing up as Santa Claus.

 

 

Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar congratulated the Christian community on the occasion of Christmas and said the nation on this day should pledge to make Pakistan a model of religious tolerance and inter-faith harmony.

The PM said the Prophet of Allah, Hazrat Essa (AS) healed the pain of humanity and took the message of God to the whole humanity.

He said the white colour in Pakistan’s green flag represented the minorities including the Christian community which played a vital role in the progress and development of the country, and in all fields including defence, judiciary, arts, sports and education made their countrymen proud.

The government has made elaborative security arrangements to avert any untoward incident on this occasion.
