Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday felicitated members of the Christian community on their religious festival of Easter. “Wishing all our Christian citizens a happy Easter,” he wrote on his official Twitter handle.
Easter is one of the religious festivals celebrated by the Christians every year around the world. The day usually celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon marks the culmination of the 40 day period of fasting called Lent. This year Easter falls on the Sunday (April 21, 2019).
The festival is also called ‘the Resurrection’ because Hazrat Isa (A.S) rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. It is also considered as a rebirth of Christianity.
