PESHAWAR: Governor Masood Kausar and Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti have called upon the people to forge unity and foil the conspiracies of those fulfilling their ulterior motives by sowing the seed of hatred and disunity among them.
In their separate messages of felicitation to the masses on the occasion of Eidul Fitr, they said the people in the region were facing a host of problems and challenges but they should not be disheartened as challenges could be surmounted with unity and true spirit of nationalism.
“Eidul Fitr marks the culmination of Ramazan-ul-Mubarik, and brings with it festivities for the faithful to celebrate the rewards they have reaped while fasting, fulfilling their religious obligations and being kind and benevolent to fellow humans,” the governor said.
He said: “On this auspicious occasion, I congratulate the countrymen in general and the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata in particular. I would also like to remind them the basic concept of fasting which stresses steadfastness, devotion and courage in following the Divine lines towards fulfilment of social and civic responsibilities.”
The governor and chief minister said that they were still in the process of reconstruction and rehabilitation in wake of the disasters caused by extremism and terrorism, therefore the need for strengthening the bonds of brother-hood, unity and consciousness for ensuring peace and security and better future has become all the more important.
They asked the fellow countrymen to continue with the spirit of tolerance, accommodation and patience and share the miseries and difficulties of the affected people especially those whose near and dear ones have embraced martyrdom.
They urged Pakistanis in general and the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata in particular to work tirelessly for a secure and prosperous future for the coming generations.
