In his message on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, the British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Mr. Thomas Drew CMG, 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-Azha.

The first Eid ul-Azha I spent in Pakistan was in 2006. I remember it as a special time for my Pakistani friends to spend time with their friends and families and to remember those less fortunate than themselves. I again therefore wish you all a very happy Eid.

Eid Mubarak!

Operational Note:

The offices of the British High Commission in Islamabad and Deputy High Commission in Karachi will remain closed from Tuesday, 13 September to Wednesday, 14 September for Eid ul-Azha.
