Muslims throughout Pakistan rushed to finalise their preparations for celebratinge Eid-ul-Fitr after the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee announced that the Shawwal moon had been sighted on Thursday.
With announcements came a flood of messages from friends, families and loved ones wishing each other Eid Mubarak either through SMS, facebook posts, tweets or the lesser used practice of Eid cards.
