The members of the Bohra Community around the globe celebrated the first day of Eid on Thursday.

Families, with children and senior citizens, participated in Eid prayers held in at least 19 locations across Karachi. Special prayers for the country’s well-being and development were also offered on the occasion.

Law enforcement agencies (LEAs) provided security for the festive gatherings across the city with police and Rangers personnel deployed at entry and exit points.

Bohra community’s spiritual leader to conduct sermons over nine days

In September 2017, around 20, 000 people attended a religious discourse by the spiritual leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community, His Holiness Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, at the Taheri Mosque in Saddar.

Among the attendees were Governor Mohammad Zubair, former chief minister Murad Ali Shah, Senator Saleem Mandviwalla, Muttahida Qaumi Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar and Mayor Wasim Akhtar.

Dr Saifuddin welcomed the participants warmly and delivered part of his sermon in Urdu, during which he emphasised on how the most beloved before Allah is one who proves to be the most beneficial to all creations.
