Srinagar, 23 May: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Party President, Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr Farooq Abdullah, and Vice President Omar Abdullah on Saturday extended warm greetings to people on Eid ul Fitr.
In his Eid greetings, Dr Farooq said, “I extend my warm wishes to people on the auspicious occasion praying that the Almighty accepts our month long fasting, repentance, prayers and rectitude. May Almighty foster unity in the ranks of Muslims, and furthers the cause of amity and brotherhood in J&K and elsewhere in the world. I urge people to take extra care in view of the Covid 19 pandemic. The problem is surmountable provided all of us are united in our resolve to fight it out at all fronts. I extend my greetings and good wishes to the front line workers who have been working tirelessly day in, day out to combat the worst ever public health nightmare.”
He urged the affluent class in the society to help those who do not have any resource to celebrate the Eid. “The extension in the lockdown induced by the prevailing COVID-19 global pandemic has regrettably increased the social gap with uncertainty looming large over the poorest of poor, daily wagers, marginal farmers pushing them to the brink of hunger. On the auspicious occasion of Eid ul Fitr, the well off in our society should lend all support to the people at need.”
Party Vice President Omar Abdullah while extending warm wishes to the people on the auspicious occasion of Eid ul Fitr said, “On this day we should include underprivileged in our happiness. There is no superior act than sharing our resources with the people at need in the present times of COVID-19 crises. I wish the candles of piety and faith remain alight in our families and neighborhood throughout the year. I extend my warm wishes to the people on the auspicious eve with a view that needs of the people at need are taken care of by the affluent ones. May the auspicious day increase the prospects of peace, prosperity, and brotherhood in J&K.”
Meanwhile members of parliament, party leaders, functionaries have also extended warm wishes to people on Eid Ul Fitr.
