Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has greeted the Muslims on the advent of Ramazan on Thursday and urged them to seek forgiveness of their sins and the blessings of Allah in this holy month, the presidential office said.

Ramazan begins in Pakistan on Thursday.

Zardari also called upon the people to step forward in this arms-giving month and help in the relief and rehabilitation of grief stricken and people whose lives have been devastated by recent floods.

"I wish to felicitate the Muslims throughout the world in general and the Muslim brothers and sisters in Pakistan in particular on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan," the president said.

"The month of Ramadan is a month of fasting and blessing, which enjoins upon the Muslims to devote themselves to observe fasting and refrain from all evil deeds. It also enjoins upon the Muslims to remember their less fortunate brethren and step forward to help them in alleviating their miseries.

He urged the countrymen to help generously the people who have been devastated by floods and acts of militancy. He prayed for peace all over the world and especially within the Muslim world.

"Those of our people who have been hard hit by recent floods, I want to assure them that the government will not abandon them and will do whatever it takes to rehabilitate them.

"Let us on this auspicious occasion also pledge to work for peace, harmony and for promotion of the brotherhood of whole of mankind," Zardari said.
