“I convey my warm greetings and best wishes to the people of our country on the auspicious occasion of Milad-un-Nabi – celebrated as the Birthday of Prophet Mohammad.
The Holy Prophet showed humanity the righteous path of compassion and universal brotherhood. Milad-un-Nabi is an occasion for family and friends to come together and pray. But this year, due to COVID-19 pandemic, I urge my fellow citizens to celebrate Milad-un-Nabi in a modest way, by strictly adhering to COVID-19 health and hygiene protocols.
May His eternal message continue to guide us in building a peaceful and harmonious society.”
