In his Eid message, the British High Commissioner, Philip Barton CMG OBE said:

On the occasion of Eid al-Adha, I would like to wish Eid Mubarak to you, your friends and families.

As I and my staff share in this very special time, our thoughts will of course turn to those facing hardships due to recent flooding in parts of Pakistan.

During these celebrations, let us also remember the sacrifices being offered by the military personnel involved in the military operation Zarb-e-Azb to tackle terrorism in Pakistan, as well as those displaced from their homes.

I wish you all a very happy Eid al-Adha.
