Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in a tweet said that Eid-ul-Azha symbolises the spirit of sacrifice, equality and compassion.

The Prime Minister said that Eid fosters unity by reducing socio-economic inequalities and creates the feelings of empathy and complete surrender before Almighty. He said 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, extended greetings to Muslims in general and our overseas Pakistanis in particular who are celebrating this festival today.

Moreover, the people rushed to markets for purchasing sacrificial animals. Due to soaring prices of animals, salaried class and low income people are finding it difficult to buy animals.
