The prime minister Raja Farooq Haider felicitated the Islamic
world in general and the Kashmiri and Pakistani 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

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 prime minister 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.”

and religious divides and will make this Eid occasion the day
of national unity. May the blessings of Allah Almighty are
with you,” the Information minister concluded.
