Pakistan celebrates the holy festival of Eid ul Adha on Monday showing solidarity with the people of war-hit Gaza and Illegally Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

At least 37,337 Palestinians have been killed and 85,299 injured in Israel’s military offensive on Gaza since October 7.

In their Eid messages, Pakistan’s top leadership expressed solidarity with the war-torn Palestine as well as people in IIOJK.

In his message, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif extended warm greetings to the Pakistani nation and Muslims around the world.

He said the festival commemorates the unwavering commitment and readiness of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice his beloved son Prophet Ismail (AS) without hesitation, as commanded by Allah.

“The day reminds us of the importance of sacrificing what is most dear to us in the way of Allah. It teaches us the value of selflessness and devotion to Allah.”

He also called to unite the people and foster the bonds of brotherhood and fraternity.

“Whilst our wish is for peace, prosperity and love to prevail all over the world during Eid ul-Adha, we are also watching with sadness and concern [about] other ongoing conflicts and violence in many countries worldwide. We should not forget the sacrifices and sufferings of the people of Palestine and Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir,” he added.

Meanwhile, President Asif Ali Zardari also extended his warm felicitations to the nation and the Muslim Ummah.

“It is a lesson for us that the key to success is to remain firm in the situation of trials and tests and to obey Allah Almighty.”

He urged the nation to reaffirm their commitment to the values of brotherhood, sacrifice, and selflessness on this occasion.

“I prayed to Allah Almighty to shower His blessings and mercy upon the entire Muslim ummah, particularly Pakistan”, he added.

Moreover, the Armed Forces of Pakistan, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC), and services chiefs extended their warm felicitations to all Pakistanis in separate messages.

“This sacred event embodies the spirit of sacrifice for the greater good. On this auspicious day, we are indebted to our martyrs and ghazis for the independence and peace which prevail in the country, and pay tribute to their ultimate sacrifices,” Inter-Services Public Relations said.

“May Allah Almighty continue to bestow His blessings upon Pakistan and protect it from the nefarious designs of its adversaries, Ameen.”
