“Enduring hunger and thirst while fasting promotes feelings of empathy for others,” added the Prime Minister.

PM Imran Khan also prayed for the future of Pakistan and also urged the masses to fully adhere to the COVID-19 SOPs to battle with the ongoing pandemic wave.

“In this blessed month of Ramadan, while showing selflessness and compassion, we have to take special care of the needy and identify and discourage the elements involved in profiteering and hoarding,” PM Imran added more.

Also, President Dr Arif Alvi and other political leaders extend greetings on the advent of this holy month.

The President said purification and obedience to the commandments of Allah Almighty are objectives of fasting.

Earlier in the day, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee has announced that the crescent for the month of Ramadan has been sighted in Pakistan.

Pakistan will observe the first day of Ramadan on Wednesday, April 14 after Chairman Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad made the announcement after the session in Peshawar.
