The Muslim world is celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr today amid worldwide lockdown situation due to the prevailing COVID-19 virus.
Following the current intense circumstances, celebrities in Pakistan urged people to stay at home this Eid and pray for the departed souls who left this World due to deadly virus and recent PIA Plane Crash.
Former Test cricketer Wasim Akram wished that he could celebrate Eid joyously instead of asking people to stay home and safe.
I just wish this year I could say to everyone Eid Mubarak and not have to give warnings, condolences or tell people to stay safe. I just hope in this minute, right now everyone is at peace, intouch with their loved ones and praying for a better tomorrow
