Published June 28, 2023

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday extended Eid-ul-Azha greetings to Muslims all over the world as well as "overseas Pakistanis".

In a tweet, he wrote, "Eid-ul-Azha symbolises the spirit of sacrifice, equality & compassion".

"It fosters unity by reducing socio-economic inequalities and creates feelings of empathy and complete surrender before Allah Almighty. A true observance of the ritual demands of us to adopt a life of piety and cleanliness."

"On the blessed occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, I extend my heartiest greetings to Muslims in general & our overseas Pakistanis in particular who are celebrating this festival today. May Allah bless their lives with peace & prosperity! Ameen."

Muslims in Middle Eastern countries, Europe, the US, and Canada are celebrating Eid-ul-Azha today (Wednesday). Eid in Pakistan will take place tomorrow (Thursday).

Last week, the government announced public holidays from June 28 (Wednesday) to July 1 (Saturday) on account of Eid-ul-Azha.

In a statement released by the Cabinet Division, it was confirmed that offices operating on a six-day workweek will be granted a break from June 29th to July 1st.

Later, the government also added June 28 to the holiday list.

Shahbaz Sharif is the most hard working and solid politican around. Unfortunately not fully supported by his own brother. If given the right space, he can indeed become our own Mahathir. Hope the Army will realize this and let him work free of the pressures and hostility of last 1 year, now that Niazi the liar is out of the picture.

Wish the same message was given to the politicians and public sector, and their recently announced perks and privileges were based on piety, sacrifice, equality, and most importantly compassion for the country.

If you're going to use foreign terms and words in the English language, then at least use them correctly from the original Arabic, which "Eid ul Azha" tried to do, but it should be Adha with a D not Z like in Urdu. It's embarrassing if this is directed at foreign audiences, that we can't distinguish between the correct original pronounciation (Adha) and carry the Urduised version (Azha) into English thinking we're doing it right just because we add Al or Ul. LoL

What is his opinion on corruption? Is it linked to cleanliness? How about cronyism?

Does "piety" allow begging and then embezzling the alms received?

Shahbaz is the most corrupt of politicians after having ordered the indiscriminate shooting on 2014 protesters - where pregnant ladies were shot in the face by his orders - now after having embezzled 16 billion rupee he is preaching is about piety…
