The Australian High Commissioner to Pakistan Dr Geoffrey Shaw sends his warmest wishes to Pakistanis celebrating Eid-ul-Adha this week.
In a special Eid message, he said:
“I send very warm wishes to all Muslims in Pakistan, Australia and around the world who are celebrating Eid ul-Adha.
I know that Eid is usually a time for great celebration with family and friends. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it many challenges, and we will not be able to gather in celebration as we have before. Yet, as Eid ul-Adha commemorates the value of sacrifice and service, within this sacred holiday we take heart in the opportunity to recommit in full spirit and joy to our families and our communities. This message of community is one that resonates across faith and creed.
Together with my wife, Gaynor and my colleagues at the Australian High Commission, I hope for all a safe and blessed Eid ul-Adha. Eid Mubarak.”
