Saturday, 01 August 2020 | PNS | RAIPUR

Eid al-Adha (Bakr-id) is to be celebrated with simplicity and no public programmes will be organized, an advisory issued by Dr S.A. Farooqui, Chief Executive Officer of the Chhattisgarh State Waqf Board, said on Wednesday.

The advisory letter issued to all the management committee, administrators and committees of all mosques, madrassas and Idgah stated that a meeting with police and administrative officials was held in the context of the extended lockdown period.

Based on the discussion, it was decided that by following all the lockdown rules, Eid al-Adha will be celebrated with simplicity and no public events will be held. No prayers will be offered at Idgah.

No ‘Eid Milan’ event will be held. Action will be taken against those moving around without any reason.

The ‘sacrifice’ ceremony will have to be held within the limits of    houses.

Chhattisgarh State Waqf Board Chairman Salam Rizvi urged the community not to violate the lockdown guidelines at any cost.

Meanwhile, Raipur Collector Dr S. Bharati Dasan denied that the district administration has given any relaxation for the ‘Eid al-Adha’ and sacrifice as reported by a section of newspapers.

He said in a statement that for Covid-19 prevention, every resident has to follow the lockdown rules. The Chhattisgarh State Waqf Board has already issued an advisory in this regard, he added.
