Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) being celebrated with religious fervour

Eid Milad-un-Nabi, the birthday of Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him), is being observed across the country with traditional religious zeal on Friday (today).
The government and religious organisations, Milad committees and individuals have planned a number of activities including Milad processions, seminars, conferences, and discussion programmes to mark the annual event.
The sacred day begins with offering special prayers in mosques for upholding and flourishing of Islam and religious teachings, unity, solidarity, progress, and welfare of the Muslim ummah.
Numerous Eid Milad-un-Nabi processions will be taken out across the country and ‘Mehfil-e-Milad’ will be held to celebrate the occasion.
All streets and roads including bazaars, shopping centres, and government and private buildings have been beautifully decorated and illuminated with lights and banners bearing the writings about the celebration of the Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) across the country.
Private and public buildings have been beautifully illuminated with colourful lights on this occasion to express jubilation over the sacred day.
Many vendors have set up colourful stalls with a unique collection of badges, stickers, flags and banners inscribed with religious slogans, to pay respect and reverence to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) across the country.
Federal and provincial governments have already prepared contingency security plans with coordination of other law enforcement agencies to guard the processions and other events to be held on the day.
