PM requests country to observe Eid "in a different manner"
In a message posted on twitter right after the Ruet e Hilal committee declared Sunday to be Eid ul Fitr, Imran Khan asked that the nation think of the people who lost their loved ones to COVID-19 and the plane crash on Friday.
Second, everyone must remember to observe the SOPs in place for COVID19. The disease is with us & social distancing must be strictly observed throughout the Eid holidays, including during Eid prayers. May Allah bless our nation.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) May 23, 2020
The tweet continued that "Second, everyone must remember to observe the SOPs in place for COVID-19." He asked that social distancing must be observed especially during Eid holidays especially during Eid prayers.
He ended the message by asking Allah to bless the nation.
