COAS Bajwa offers Eid prayers with troops at LoC

RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa offered Eid prayers with troops at the Line of Control (LoC).

On the occasion, he prayed for the peace and prosperity of Pakistan. The army chief hailed the morale and devotion of troops and their operational preparedness.

General Bajwa said the security, safety and well-being of the people of Pakistan is our responsibility. He said Pakistan Army will do everything to live up to the expectations of the nation.

The army chief paid tributes to martyrs of Pakistan for their sacrifices. He said we take pride to be on duty as soldiers and defend the motherland irrespective of the front or occasion.

He said on this Eid day, we must not forget valiant struggle of brave people of Kashmir. He said it is time to end the human tragedy in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and resolve the dispute as per aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and the UN resolutions.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked the people to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr in a quiet manner with their families in view of Coronavirus situation and to express solidarity with oppressed Kashmiri and Palestinian people.

In his tweets, the prime minister said this is a very different Eid as there is a coronavirus pandemic and it is vital for people to observe SOPs as the country is now again beginning to control its spread. 

He said equally critical is the need for us to show solidarity with the Kashmiris and Palestinians who are suffering from oppression by occupation powers in complete violation of their international guaranteed basic human rights. The Prime Minister also extended Eid greetings to the Muslim Ummah.
