Srinagar, Aug 21 (KNS): PDP President and former Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has greeted people of the State on the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.
In her message, the PDP President prayed the blessed festival further inculcates the values of selfless service, piety and care about each other among us. She said the Sunnah of Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) which embodies these values needs to be followed more in present times which are marked by acrimony, ill will and confrontation all across the globe.
Mehbooba Mufti said the occasions like Eid should invite us to think about happiness and welfare of those who cannot afford the necessities of life or who became victims of fate due to one reason or the other. “On this day, let’s give handholding to orphans, widows, destitute and any other who needs it. There lies the real spirit of celebrating Eid-ul-Azha”, she said in her message.
Terming the Hajj pilgrimage, which coincides with this festival, as the best example of human camaraderie, Mehbooba Mufti said the annual pilgrimage gives us a message that no barriers of caste, creed, colour or region exist before God except piety and good deeds.
She hoped the day brings an everlasting joy, peace and happiness to the people of the State. (KNS)
