British High Commissioner to Pakistan

In his message the British High Commissioner Thomas Drew said:

On behalf of the British Government and all here at the British High Commission, I send my best wishes to all Muslims in Pakistan and elsewhere as they celebrate Eid ul-Fitr.

I remember from the last time I spent Eid ul-Fitr in Pakistan in 2008 the importance of the festival to mark the end of the holy month of Ramazan. I remember it being a time of gratitude and contemplation, but remember also the joy as families came together.

Eid Mubarak!
