Eid-ul-Fitr is being celebrated across the country today. The festival heralding the end of the fasting month of Ramzan was celebrated in Jammu and Kashmir and Kerala yesterday.
Shahi Imam of Delhi Jama Masjid Sayyed Ahmad Bukhari has appealed to people not to come to mosques to offer prayers and offer namaz at home in view of the pandemic. The Shahi Imam has urged people to take precautions and maintain social distancing while celebrating the auspicious festival.
He said that people should refrain from shaking hands and hugging each other. Several other Ulemas from all the sects have already appealed to the muslims to offer prayers at home only.
This is perhaps the first time when there will be no mass namaz at mosques and idgahs across the country as all kinds of religious gatherings have been prohibited to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
