Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday felicitated the Christian community on Easter and urged them to celebrate at home.

The premier took to Twitter and asked the Christian community to stay safe during the pandemic by praying and celebrating at home.

"Please stay safe and keep your families safe during the COVID-19 pandemic by praying and celebrating at home; & by observing the national safety protocols," he wrote.

 

The annual Easter festival marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the culmination of 40 days of lent - a time of fasting, reflection and spiritual renewal for the Christian community.

In consideration of the ban imposed on congregational gatherings amid the growing threat of COVID-19, several places of worship in the country have decided to not hold congregational prayers to help control the spread of the disease.
