ISLAMABAD, Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, and Prime Minister, Raja Pervez Ashraf, Friday used their messages on the eve of Muslim festival of "Eid" to urge the nation to unite against the challenges of terrorism, extremism, sectarianism and target killings, local media reported.

"Eid-ul-Adha" will be celebrated in Pakistan on Saturday under tight security and the government has decided to suspend mobile phone service in 13 sensitive areas over threats.

The President said the country today is facing the challenges of terrorism, extremism, sectarianism and target killings and there is a need to inculcate unity, brotherhood, will for sacrifice, religious tolerance, and high qualities to face these challenges.

"We should remember on this auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, the sacrifices of the people rendered in the war against terrorism to defend the country," said the President in his message.

He called upon the nation to unite for the progress and prosperity of the country by adopting the true spirit of sacrifice, brotherhood, religious tolerance and renouncing the hatred and prejudice.

Prime Minister Ashraf in his message said the best way to combat the challenges posed to the nation by extremism, sectarianism and terrorism is that the masses should follow the teaching of Islam.

"We should promote the values of compassion, unity and brotherhood among ourselves and dedicate all our energies to the prosperity and well-being of the country," he said.

The Prime Minister said what the Eid day demands of the masses is that they adopt sacrifice, benevolence and brotherhood as their national character and help establish such a tolerant and harmonious society where its members are able to perform their duties in peace and tranquility.
