It is important to mention here that this year Eid would be different and we must follow the guidelines given by the government.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza said, “This Eid is different than any other Eid we’ve ever had. This year you should avoid hugging your loved ones and wear a mask when you meet them.”
Adding, “Like in Ramazan we said that people should avoid going to the mosque and make every home a mosque, we have the same advice on Eid. People should start their Eid day by praying their special namaz at home.”
“As this is the last week of Ramazan, we should look around us and find ways to help those who need our help but may not be able to ask for it. Ramazan and Eid are times of caring and sharing.”
