Pakistan kicked off Eidul Azha celebrations with special prayers on Monday morning. Soon after greetings were exchanged, men went out in search of butchers to help them carry out their sacrifice.

Muslims across the world celebrate the annual festival of Eidul Azha, or the Festival of Sacrifice, which marks the end of the Haj pilgrimage to Makkah, and commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to God.
