It teaches us the lessons of faith, steadfastness, perseverance and above all patience at a time when faced with heavy odds and powerful adversaries. On the occasion of 10th of Muharram, being observed today, I take the opportunity to stress upon the countrymen in general and the people of the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in particular to maintain complete unity, cohesion and harmony in their ranks; demonstrate the highest level of fraternity and commitment for ensuring better future for the coming generations”.
