CM Murad Ali Shah calls for celebrating Eid with simplicity


KARACHI: CM Murad on Thursday appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan to make a national announcement to celebrate this Eidul Fitr with simplicity.

He also urged people to celebrate Eid with simplicity and called for dedicating it to the people who have been affected by the infection.

Referring to Chief of Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed’s remarks during the hearing of the coronavirus case, he said he was surprised to hear comments like “You may not want to wear new clothes, but others do.”

“How is it possible that I wear new clothes while the coronavirus affected persons cannot afford it”, the CM questioned.

Hitting back at criticism of the Sindh government over its anti-Covid-19 response, he said it was the Sindh province that enlightened the entire country about how to combat the dreaded virus.

Murad said other provinces followed the decisions his government took to stem the virus spread.
