Altaf Hamid Rao,
MIRPUR (AJK): Kashmiris dwelling both sides of the LoC – AJK and Indian occupied Jammu Kashmir, are all set to celebrate Eid ul Azha likely on August 13 with traditional religious zeal and fervor on sighting of moon of 10th of the holy month of Zilhaj.

In the continuation of the renewal of the religious, historic and invincible bondage with Pakistan, people of Jammu & Kashmir at both sides of the line of control and rest of the world will celebrate Eid ul Azha simultaneously with the scheduled observance of the festival in Pakistan most likely on Aug. 13 – with traditional religious and devotion with the renewal of the resolve to continue acting upon and upholding the teachings of Islam.

The day will dawn with special prayers in the mosques for the stability, integrity, unity and solidarity of the Muslim Ummah, progress and prosperity of Pakistan and Azad Jammu Kashmir, early liberation of all occupied Muslim homelands including Indian held Jammu & Kashmir and for the early success of the Kashmir freedom movement.

In Azad Jammu & Kashmir, special Eid ul Azha prayer congregations will be held at all small and major cities and towns of all ten districts of the liberated territory including the state’s metropolis Muzaffarabad, Mirpur, Kotli, Bhimbher, Haveili, Hattiyan, Bagh, Sudhanoti, Rawalakot and Neelam valley districts where the people will offer Eid prayer at the mosques, eid gahs and open places. Later on the ‘farzandan-e-Touheed’ will sacrify animals following the foot step of the towering personality of Hazrat Ibrahiem (AS) who by obeying the order of Allah Almighty, asked his son Hazrat Isnmail (AS) for his sacrifice. Any way, Ismaiel (AS) walked smilingly to the altar. The knife did not work. Hazrat Ismaiel (AS) survived. A sheep was slaughtered instead and Muslims were directed to commemorate the event every year.

AJK government is reportedly going to announce August 12 to Aug. 15 official holidays for celebrating Eid ul Azha across AJK
