  • Description

    DACCA, IN EAST PAKISTAN, WAS ONE OF THE CENTERS OF THE MOSLEM WORLD THAT THIS WEEK CELEBRATED THE END OF RAMADAN, THE ANNUAL PERIOD OF FASTING FOR MOSLEMS.

    AFTER THE WEEKS OF ABSTINENCE FESTIVE CROWDS POURED INTO THE MARKETS TO BUY BANGLES, SANDALS AND SWEETMEATS. BUT THE HEART OF THE CELEBRATION REMAINED THE RELIGIOUS SERVICES IN MOSQUES AND THE PRAYERS.

    PRESIDENT AYUB KHAN, IN KARACHI, LED THE NATION IN THE CELEBRATIONS. IN A SPECIAL MESSAGE MARKING THE END OF RAMADAN, THE PRESIDENT CALLED ON MOSLEMS EVERYWHERE TO ADJUST TO THE MODERN WORLD OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.

    HE SAID MOSLEMS FACED GREAT CHALLENGES. THEIR EXISTENCE AS REPRESENTATIVES OF A FAITH DEPENDED ON HOW THEY ADJUSTED THEMSELVES WITHOUT LOSING HOLD OF THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF THEIR FAITH, HE SAID.

    PRESIDENT AYUB CALLED ON MOSLEMS FOR AN IMMEDIATE ORIENTATION OF THEIR ATTITUDES SO THAT THEY COULD RESPOND TO NEW COMPULSIONS AND DEMANDS.
