Christian Community Celebrates Easter!!

The Pakistani Christian community celebrated Easter on Sunday with religious zeal and fervor.

The festival commemorates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, according to the New Testament.

The followers of Christ believe Jesus was resurrected in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago.

Special services were hosted at different places across the country where the believers attended prayers for salvation, and for the progress and prosperity of Pakistan.

However, strict SOPs were ensured at all venues where prayers were held as the country battles a third wave of the coronavirus.

Unlike the traditional festivity, limited celebrations are taking this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
