“It is not only we celebrate the Eid festivals. We have many Hindu friends and reciprocate our wishes on Hindu festivals like Raksha Bandhan, Janmasthami and Diwali. We fire crackers on Diwalis too,” Yusuf and Irfan were quoted as saying by Pakistan Observer.
“The month of Shravan in Hindu is as holy as Ramadhan in our community and both come together almost every year, indicating Hindus and Muslims are brothers.
“The celebration is not going to be unusual. We all family members will celebrate together.
“My father, Mehmood Khan has been serving in the mosque since he was 14.
“The entire family (including sister, Shagufa, and mother Samimbanu) has been observing Roza (Fasting) in this holy month. When on tour, we miss fastings on match days but observe them on practice days. We, however, cover up the missed rozas.
“We get wishes from friends and team mates on Eid days,” Yusuf said.
