“This Eid, we must, therefore, beseech Almighty Allah to protect the weak, feed the poor and give us the courage, wisdom to subdue and defeat those who would do violence and destruction to the innocent.
“We pray for our gallant soldiers and other security agents confronting these agents of evil people.
“We pray for the unity and stability of this country.
