Here's How Pakistanis Have Been Dealing With The Two Eid Celebration, Yet Again

By Hurmat Riaz | 26 Jun, 2017

Eid celebration in Pakistan has been marred with the two Eid controversy, yet again, this year.


So, it’s that time of the year again. When Muslims all around the world celebrate the end of Ramazan with Eid. The festival of everything colorful and sweet



For the past few years celebrating Eid is kind of a funny story in Pakistan

In the same country, we celebrate not one but two Eids kyun ke gee khushi hee bari hoti hai humain. We eat and eat and eat. And sleep and sleep and sleep.



This time, in order to have one united Eid, Mufti Popalzai (the man behind two Eid theory) was sent to Dubai


But Peshawar was like, say no more fam, we gotcha and saw the chaand and announced the Eid. Just. Like. That.


Inn ko tou pehlay say hee pata tha! MashAllah. Kya nazar paee hai.


People in other areas had questions


And the rest of the country started celebrating it a day later


People in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were not ready for this confusion


#TeamMunib and #TeamPopalzai were built and lines were drawn

Who do you support?


Whether it’s one Eid or two, you’re celebrating today or did it yesterday, Mubarak ho aapko aur khush rahieye

Amidst all the celebration, people haven’t forgotten the tragedies in Bahawalpur, Parachinar and Quetta


Hope you’re having a happy, safe Eid with your loved ones. Remember others in your prayer.
