In his Eid message, President Dr Arif Alvi has urged upon the nation to adopt fraternity and compassion in their ranks and work for the progress and prosperity of the country by rising above personal, regional and sectarian biases.
He felicitated the entire Muslim Ummah and particularly the Pakistani nation on the joyous occasion of Eidul Fitr.
President Alvi said the festival of Eidul Fitr carries the essence of Islamic values and traditions and also symbolizes the religious ethos.
The President said Eid is also a day of completion of the month-long training which Muslims undergo during the blessed month of Ramazan.
He prayed to Allah Almighty to guide everyone to follow the true teachings of Islam and make the motherland a citadel of peace and prosperity.
