Community and equality

On this blessed occasion, let us keep those struggling to make ends meet in our thoughts and actions

Editorial June 17, 2024


As we celebrate Eidul Azha to honour the sacrifices of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), let us not forget the values that define our faith and our nation. Amidst the festivities and family gatherings, we must remember the importance of collectivism, community and equality. In these challenging times, as Pakistan faces economic hardships that disproportionately affect the common man, it is more crucial than ever to come together as a nation. Let us not forget that the true spirit of Eidul Azha is about sharing, caring and showing compassion to those in need. As we sacrifice our animals in remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) unwavering faith, let us also sacrifice our individual interests for the greater good. Let us strive to create a society where everyone has access to basic necessities, where no one is left behind, and where equality is not just a distant dream.

On this blessed occasion, let us keep those struggling to make ends meet in our thoughts and actions. Let us extend our empathy beyond our immediate circles, reaching out to the marginalised and vulnerable. If possible, share our resources, no matter how small, to bring a smile to someone’s face. But most importantly, let us vow to always advocate for policies that promote economic justice and equality. Let us turn our faith into action, ensuring that our sacrifices lead to tangible improvements in the lives of others. Our nation’s strength lies in our collective resilience, our capacity for compassion, and our unwavering commitment to justice. On this Eidul Azha, let us rekindle the spirit of unity and solidarity that defines us as Pakistanis.

Wishing you all a blessed and joyous Eidul Azha! May our actions reflect the true spirit of sacrifice, community and compassion, paving the way for a more just and equitable society for all.
