Government of Pakistan have announced that there will be no CNG load shedding on Eid al-Adha 2014, so people can move to their hometowns and back easily using the cheap alternate fuel. The Gasoline or Petrol is normally unaffordable in Pakistan due to above 40% taxes on it. Specially on such occasions when l0ng journeys back to hometowns have to be made by masses, their first preference will be low cost fuel like CNG, which by the way is only low cost fuel available to masses in Pakistan.
CNG stations already opened on Friday the 3rd of October 2o14 and will remain open till the end of Eid Holidays which is Thursday, 9th of October, 2014. Punjab is the province in which CNG load shedding is most severe, only two days a week CNG is available to Pakistani people. But now after this announcement People of Punjab including the Potohar Region will also enjoy almost one week of CNG availability.

Eid al-Adha is one of those beautiful festival which Muslims around the world celebrate. Its Also called the ‘Greater Eid’ or ‘Eid of Sacrifice’ due to the very fact that Muslims slaughter the animals like Cows, Goats, Camels and few other on Eid day and divide the meat free between the deserving people.
This Eid celebration and sacrifice of animals is performed to remember the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son (Ismaial) as act of obedience of Allah (G0d), God though had swapped it with an animal before knife could do its act.
This Eid and sacrifice is beautiful in a way that Muslims first slaughter an animal and then give away the meet to people who normally can’t afford the meat. It doesn’t matter that deserving one is Muslim or not. It is about getting the less privileged involved in pleasures of life with the more privileged people.
People either sacrifice a full small animal like a goat or seven people collectively sacrifice a bigger animal like cow or camel etc. Then every one divides his/her meat to be sacrificed in three equal portions, one is for his/her own one, one is divided among close relatives and final one is divided between the deserving people. However, one can go forward to make the deserving people’s portion bigger to take most of the essence of this sacrifice.
After all this explanation of essence of Eid al-Adha i would like to say Happy Eid (Eid Mubarik) to Muslims in Pakistan and all over the world. Remember the deserving people around you, make an effort to divide the meat among those really deserving people and make sure very less portion of your meat goes into your freezers.

We at infoPakistan wish a very happy Eid to our followers and all the Muslims around the world. Here in Pakistan lots of animals will spent their last night on earth before the day of judgment coming down on them tomorrow. 😀 Lots around the world already faced this.
Whats different about this event is that on Eid Al-Adha the Muslims around the world are up to one and one thing only, a campaign against animals. 😀
Anyways, stay happy on eid day, remember all your friends/relatives, specially don’t forget the people in need. Wish you best of luck.
