In Pakistan, many celebrations of the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh were held throughout the country. To express his warm wishes for the historic occasion, the President of Pakistan addressed a letter to the Bahá’í community, writing "Bahá’ís are a peaceful people and together with other communities are contributing to the betterment of society."
The Bahá’í community also recieved a letter from the Federal Minister of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, who wrote, "Peace and unity are the pivotal teachings of the Bahá’í Faith, and the Bahá’í community of Pakistan are a peace loving community. Their contribution towards the betterment of individual, society and the country are truly admirable and have been in harmony with efforts being made by our Government of Pakistan."
A small caravan visited neighbouring communities scattered across the eastern part of Sindh, Pakistan, playing a theme song in the local language created especially for the bicentenary. The visits prompted spontaneous celebrations.
