Eīd does not bring any extraordinary significance for people who are termed as ‘poor’ except it comes and goes like every other day. Their children never get new dresses, shoes or food on Eid and it’s all a daydream for them.
Labourers and domestic servants, who spend day and night in tremendous hard work, just to fulfill the obligation of two meals but usually sleep with empty stomachs, hardly share this event’s delight and cheerfulness because of dire poverty.
Street children and destitute people endure pains of deprivation and untold sufferings. There is absolutely nothing for them in this blissful affair. They all know one thing; Eid is for the affluent class and not for the poor people like them.
The genuine enjoyment of Eid cannot be achieved if a major portion of the population suffers just because of no or less money. It cannot be an auspicious Eid-day, if lots of poor children remain without food, cloths and shoes. The cheerfulness of an Eid get-together will be deflating, if needy people remain starved and neglected.
Let’s make this Eīd great for everyone!
Let’s celebrate this occasion with those who are waiting for someone to come & let them know the meaning of this occasion. Lets celebrate this EID with the people who deserve the very same happiness as the elite genre of the society but cannot afford that.
