The Eid prayer at Faisal Mosque, Islamabad, where thousands of people offer their Eid prayers each year, was offered ahead of time without any notice being given to the masses.

The public was outraged to find that the Eid prayer had been offered ahead of time due to the fact that president Mamnoon had reached the venue an hour before the announced time, a local channel reported.

Due to the security measures taken for the president, the public had to face a lot of issues in reaching the mosque.

The Eid prayer marks the starting of the Eid festivities for Muslims all over the world.
