The quintessential spirit of submitting unconditionally to will of the Supreme Being is universal in content and timeless in context. Human being is uniquely blessed with the ultimate opportunity to exhibit his cherished devotion to his Creator.
2. Muslim Ummah will yet again be given an opportunity to redeem its pledge of submission to Allah SWT on the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Adha with the conviction that it will stay steadfast in its vows of submission. It will also be provided a chance to delve deep into its moorings that emphasize sacrifice for a superior cause as the epitome of human existence.
3. Pakistanis have been and are going through ravages of unprecedented floods causing widespread devastation that witnessed a surge of public sympathy and sacrifice for the affected. Let me assure all Pakistanis in distress that your resolve has deeply impressed upon us the need to hasten and increase our efforts to provide you utmost succor in these times of trial.
4. We also encountered vicious specter of violent extremism through the extremely laudable Operation Zarb-e-Azb undertaken by our valiant armed forces. The unflinching resolve shown by our armed forces in combating the violent scourge speaks volumes about the sacrifice they are willing to render for our freedom, well being and honor.
5. Pakistanis are equally aware of the supreme sacrifices rendered by internally displaced persons of tribal areas in wake of Operation Zarb-e-Azb. I wish to reassure them of our boundless support in ameliorating the difficulties experienced by them and will do our utmost to resettle them appropriately.
6. The spirit of Eid-ul-Adha this year may serve as a poignant reminder to the disconcerted elements not very well conversant with the supremacy of national consensus bestowed on democratic forces that sowing discord is diametrically opposite to the spirit of accommodation and tolerance. The credentials of the democratically elected representatives have shown resilient adherence to the practices of prudence, decency, justice and fair play that are required to be emulated by all factors defying them.
7. Let me take this opportunity to felicitate the Pakistani nation on this solemnly auspicious occasion by reiterating my resolve to incessantly endeavor for bringing to fruition the national development goals I have undertaken to deliver. I am grateful for the confidence the nation has reposed in me to continue pursuing our national agenda aimed at making Pakistan a prosperous country amongst the comity of nations.
