One cannot exactly judges whether pleasures and happiness of Eidul Azha for common people were more cherished in the past or in the current era, however, one can say it easily that use of modern technology like TV channels, internet and cellular phone have faded the zeal and enthusiasm of Eid festivities and people particularly grown-up remain perturb over financial issues. Earlier, it was accustomed that all members of a family used to gather at parents premises to celebrate Eid festivities and enjoy the company of each other by slaughtering sacrificial animals, cut them into small pieces, cook them and finally enjoy it by intaking cooked meat. But, with the passage of time, the traditional values and customs changed and families have been divided like Western on the back of financial constraints. With this change, people have now become individuals and dont want interference of anyone in their individual life. Resultantly, the two Eids are also changing into common days. Muslims celebrate two Eids in a calendar year, one after Ramazan and second after performing Haj in Makkah. The festival of Eidul Fitr marks the end of Ramadan - a month when Muslims fast throughout the day and eat only at night while Eidul Azha is celebrated to pay homage to Almighty Allah for the successful completing the rituals of Haj. Though only those Muslims should celebrate the Eid festivity who performed Haj but, in fact, all other Muslims in the world join them to celebrate celebration of sacrifice on the 10th day of the last month of the Islamic calendar to pay thankfulness of Almighty God. Muslims around the world celebrate this feast with commitment, obedience and self-sacrifice to Almighty Allah. Eid means recurring happiness or festivity. Eid is celebrated in Muslim countries with much enthusiasm and fervour and Muslims from all strata of life can be seen adorned neat and clean or new clothes, visit the mosques to attend Eid prayers followed by exchanging greetings of Eid-Mubarak. But celebrations of Eids in Pakistan are becoming burden for the large chunk of population because of financial crunches while expatriate Pakistanis living in different countries of the world have their own problems rather than financial. Those who live in Western countries though have more than sufficient capital in their banks accounts but they cannot celebrate Eids with enthusiasm and fervour because they feel outlandish there. Those who settled there with their families somehow celebrate Eids at their respective homes but most of expatriate Pakistanis used to go to local parks and other public places so that they could weep there and commemorate their parents and family members. Tajammal Gurmani settled in London revealed that as his family used to live in Lahore and he lonely migrated London for the purpose of saving, he spent his Eid days in parks and other public places where he used to moan like other Pakistanis remembering family members. Whereas, in Pakistan, people face other issues that have faded their Eids festivities particularly their financial problems. The prime problem financial crunch has almost changed the tradition and customs of old times. For instance, just one decade ago when inflation was below two digits, people used to purchase goats, sheep or any other animal of their choice and nourish them at their homes to sacrifice them as a symbol of Ibrahim's (PBUH) ritual. As being pet animals, they emotionally attached to these animals and at the time of sacrifice they feel the pain of attachment. On Eid day, all Muslim used to wear new clothes in the morning of Eid and by intaking something sweet used to go to mosque for Eid prayer. This is followed by a short sermon, after which everyone socialised. In the next step, few people visit each other's homes and partake in festive meals with special dishes, beverages and desserts while others sacrifice their animals and then go to their relatives for distribution of meat among them. The meat is distributed for the consumption among family, friends and to the poor and needy in order to complete the Sunnah of last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). But unfortunately, sheep and goats are being sold in the markets at exorbitant prices has become out of reach of common people. As their power of purchase has become weak and they cannot afford these animals, so they have no option but to bolster the culture of collective scarification (Ijtimai Qurbani) of cows, buffalos and camels. In fact, the skyrocketing prices of sacrificial animals have forced people to opt for this option which is becoming more popular with the passage of time. The prices of animals have almost increased by 100 percent as compared to last year. Vendors say that the price hike is the result of the rising inflation, increased transportation charges and other associated expenses. Murtaza Mehmood, a retired government servant, said that until a few years back, he used to sacrifice a goat regularly on every Eid-ul-Azha but this year it has become out of reach as the rates of goats are very high and a person belonging to middle class cannot afford it, he said adding that buying a sacrificial animal has really become a dream now. The hard fact is that financial crunches have boost the trend of joint sacrifice (Ijtamai Qurbani) after high prices of animals for the last few years, Murtaza added. While on the other hand, sellers are demanding high prices for the animals because they claimed they have spent a lot of time in waiting for the customers ready to pay their desired prices adding that the price hike is the result of the rising inflation, increased transportation charges and other associated expenses. However, people belong to middle class are of the view that high prices of kitchen items and other commodities, the ever-increasing rates of utility bills and sacrificial animals have faded the festivities of their Eids and they are helpless in this era of inflation. They complained that earlier their rich relatives used to send meat to them which they consume in a course of time but now in this era they preferred to keep the meat in their own deep freezers rather than to distribute it. They opined that high rate of inflation and abundant use of modern technology have made people individuals that made the Eid festivities more faded.
