Preparations to celebrate Eidul Azha in full swing
LAHORE (92 News) – Preparations for celebrating Eidul Azha are in full swing across the country with a lot of activity being witnessed in cattle markets. For the majority of citizens, though, Eid preparations meant finding a good place to celebrate. Malls too became increasingly crowded with people enjoying various family shows particularly organized for Eid celebrations. The administration of major cities has designated specific places for animal markets where faithful in large number are buying animals for sacrificing on Eidul Azha. For the past week, the vacant field outside the orderly Pakistani capital has been transformed into a teeming mix of human and animal traffic, hucksterism and religious sentiment. Every seller is looking for an edge, every buyer for a trick. Both sides also seem to be swept up in the excitement of the holiday ritual, when Muslims the world over will slit the throat of an animal and distribute its meat to friends, relatives and the needy. People especially children are showing great interest in getting the animals of their choice. The government has taken strict security measures across the country to avoid any untoward incident.
