Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan offered Eid-ul-Fitr prayers at the Banigala mosque along with the staff deputed at the Secretariat.
After the prayers, the prime minister mingled with the people and wished them Eid greetings.
Earlier, in his message to the countrymen on the occasion of Eidul Fitr, the prime minister said the objective of Eid was to promote unity, brotherhood, sacrifice and generosity among the Muslims.
He extended greetings to the nation and thanked Allah Almighty for blessing with such a festive day.
He said the people could only share joys of Eid with others unless they abided by the golden principles of Islam and promote generosity by doing away with negative behaviours including jealousy, greed and hatred.
He said the government had embarked upon the journey to put country on track of progress and prosperity.
“Insha Allah, we will soon succeed in developing Pakistan on the pattern of State of Madina by ridding it of social and economic challenges,” he remarked.
He said the State of Madina had become a model in the human history that had won laurels for contributing to the human welfare.
The incumbent government would continue to playing its responsible role for developing Pakistan into a real welfare state.
He also sought public support and struggle to help the government achieve this objective, he added.
The prime minister also prayed to Allah Almighty to make Pakistan a cradle of peace and prosperity for what every Pakistani was yearning.
