ISLAMABAD:  The country is celebrating  Eid-ul-Adha on Saturday, amid the COVID-19 pandemic SOPs, to honour the supreme sacrifice of Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (AS).

As people got ready to celebrate, many politicians took to Twitter and warned the nation to adhere to the SOPs while celebrating the auspicious day. The warning comes as the country continues to report fewer cases of COVID-19. 

Here's a look at the messages by some political leaders of the country.

The President House had a special video message urging people to avoid unnecessary gatherings.

FM Qureshi asked people to exercise "collective responsibility".
