Pakistan Bans New Year's Eve Celebrations in Solidarity with Gaza

Pakistan's Prime Minister, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, declared a ban on New Year celebrations in a show of solidarity with the people of Palestine.

Crisis in Palestine

Israel's military actions in Gaza have resulted in the loss of over 21,000 Palestinian lives since October 7, as reported by the Gaza Health Ministry. The relentless air and ground attacks have sparked criticism from Muslim nations worldwide, including Pakistan, intensifying calls for an immediate cease-fire.

Prime Minister's Condemnation

Expressing his concerns, Prime Minister Kakar, in an exclusive video message, condemned Israel's actions in Palestine. He emphasized that Pakistan has consistently called for a cease-fire in the Middle East and announced the New Year celebration ban to express solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian population.

Solidarity Call and Aid Efforts

Kakar urged the public to welcome the new year with simplicity, demonstrating support for the people of Palestine. Pakistan has already sent two aid consignments to Gaza, with a third on the way, as part of efforts to address the escalating humanitarian crisis in the region.
