The Pakistani Community in Fiji held an auspi­cious event and entertained guests and close fam­ilies to commemorate the holy day of Eid-ul-Fitr over the weekend.

For those in attendance at the event and the many other Muslims throughout Fiji, this is the final chapter of a long yet rewarding month of Ramadan.

Guests were served vibrant delicacies and rich delights.

Community representative Saud Minam said for the many Pakistanis living in Fiji this day allowed for a rea­son to unite in each other’s company and appreciate the presence of such a close-knit community so many miles from home.

“For this particular occasion, the gathering was a one-dish event where each family brought their personal favorite Pakistani dish leading to a lunch table that was brimming with scrumptious curries, a delectable assort­ment of breads and luscious desserts,” Mr Minam said.

“As always the event was awash with colours, the women fashioning bright, vivacious shalwar kameez compliment­ed by bold and kurtas worn proudly by the men.”

He said that it had always been supportive and embraced the different cultures of its citizens, a key factor for any successful progressive nation.
