Eid Mubarak to our Muslim Ummah. This is a very different Eid which we must celebrate in a quiet manner with our families, for 2 imp reasons. One: there is the Corona pandemic. In Pak we are now again beginning to control the spread so it is vital for our ppl to observe SOPs.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) May 13, 2021
He said the objective of making the believers pass through the exercise of patience and thankfulness is to realize others’ sufferings and hunger as the compassion towards others is the real strength and identity of a human society.
The Prime Minister said same feelings were also the characteristics of State of Madina, which we follow as our role model and strive to develop a human friendly society.
Two, equally critical is the need for us all to show solidarity with the Kashmiris & Palestinians who are suffering oppression by Occupation Powers in complete violation of their international guaranteed basic human rights.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) May 13, 2021
