Muslims in Pakistan – amid the fourth wave of novel coronavirus – crowded mosques and prayer grounds across the country to offer prayers and sacrifice goats and cows for Eidul Azha on Wednesday, marking the second major religious festival of Islam.
Following the Eid prayers, the faithful performed the ritual of sacrificing animals, spending their time feasting with family and friends and distributing sacrificial meat among their family members, friends, and the poor.
The government has advised the faithful to follow the SOPs for containing the Covid-19 pandemic while performing the ritual of sacrificing animals. While offering Eid prayers, they were asked to maintain distance, and avoid hugging and instead extend only greetings.
Celebs took to social media and wished their fans and followers.
– wishing you all a very very happy eid !

It is difficult to celebrate this Eid, knowing the utterly barbaric murder that took one of this city’s brightest, best souls from us.
If you’re reading this, please take a moment to pray for Noor and her family.
Allah ham sab ko apne hifz-o-amaan mai rakhay.
