Eid Miladun Nabi (peace be upon him) was celebrated on Sunday throughout the country with religious fervour and zeal.

Hundreds of congregations and processions took place in various cities marking the birthday of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Streets and markets were decorated with ribbons and buntings. Government buildings including the Civil Secretariat and the Assembly Chambers were decorated with colourful lights.

Police chalked out elaborate plans to ensure foolproof security during the celebrations.

Various organisations have planned activities to mark the day including naat and milad sessions, seminars, conferences, and speech competitions for students.

Messages from leaders

Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said that there was no space for terrorism, militancy or extremism in Islam and those involved in such activities cannot call themselves Muslims.

“Terrorism and extremism are incompatible with the essence of Islamic teachings," Gilani said.

Federal Minister for Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that observing Kashmir Solidarity Day and Eid Miladun Nabi (PBUH) on same day was a matter of joy for the people of Pakistan.

Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Governor Barrister Masood Kausar urged the people of Pakistan to be conscious of their role and responsibilities as the followers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), for the development and progress of the country, on both individual and collective level.

@pervaiz memon, the difference is that instead of honoring and celebrating Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) sunnats only on one particular day, celebrate them every day of the year.
