In their separate messages, both the leaders urged people to share joys of Eid with poor and under-privileged.
The Prime Minister said the real spirit of Eid-ul-Azha lies in fostering the essence of sacrifice and reverence before Allah Almighty.
PM Nawaz Sharif said, “We need to rise above personal, sectarian, and party interests to get rid of extremist approaches. We should work on converging our spirits of sacrifice towards the unity of nation and the Muslim community the world over.”
The President said on this occasion, as true Pakistanis, we should also remember the invaluable sacrifices of our brothers and sisters who are suffering difficulties in fight against terrorism.
He said our armed forces are actively engaged in a decisive fight against terrorism and we are very close to victory.
