Eid Greetings from the High Commissioner to the Community

syed ibn e abbas

“On the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, 1437 AH, I extend my heartiest greetings to the British Pakistanis in the UK and to all the Muslims across the world, celebrating this most important event of the Islamic calendar.“Eid-ul-Fitr, at the end of holy month of Ramzan, is a joyous occasion and a day of gratitude for the bounties and blessings of Almighty Allah that we enjoy.This festival brings families and friends together for celebration. It also
allows us to reflect and make a resolve to uphold the virtues of giving, sharing, empathy, tolerance and compassion—the lessons learnt during the
month-long fasting.“Since the last Eid, Pakistan has moved forward in several areas of our national life–be it economic turnaround, improved security environment or our robust cultural scene. We celebrate Pakistan’s joining the league of Emerging Markets, which is a testimony of Pakistan’s economic growth. Our security environment has significantly improved as a result of the National Action Plan (NAP). Similarly, revival of cultural activities, holding of literary festivals and ongoing sports events are a welcome sign in contemporary Pakistan. I am pleased to state that today the narrative about Pakistan is changing fast across the globe.“It is my pleasure to share with you that the High Commission has conceived an elaborate calendar of events to celebrate 70th Independence Anniversary of Pakistan in a befitting manner. The High Commission would like to see full participation by the community in the Anniversary celebrations.“However, on this occasion, let us remember and pay tribute to a large number of martyrs from civilians and armed forces who have laid down their lives in Pakistan’s fight against the menace of extremism and terrorism. Their sacrifices have made Pakistan much safer than before. We owe the martyrs our gratitude.“I wish you all a very happy, prosperous and safe Eid-ul-Fitr. “Eid Mubarak! Pakistan Paindabad!”
