LG thanks Muslims for peaceful celebration of Eid-ul-Adha

Wednesday, 19 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Delhi Lieutenant Governor (LG) Vinai Kumar Saxena on Tuesday thanked the people of the city, especially the Muslim community for befittingly celebrating Eid-ul-Adha on Monday and recorded his appreciation for Delhi Police and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi(MCD) apart from other agencies for efficiently facilitating  the same.

Like in the case of Eid-ul-Fitr, when upon the request of LG, Namaaz was exclusively offered within mosques and Idgah premises, this time as well devotees did not offer the Eid-ul-Adha Namaaz on roads and stuck to mosques and Idgahs.

In a stark departure from the past, there was no open slaughtering of sacrificial animals, and the MCD in close coordination with the devotees and Police, ensured that the carcass of sacrificed animals were immediately picked up and disposed at identified dumping sites.

It may be recalled that last year various locations in Delhi, especially those in North-East and North Shahdara Zone had witnessed gruesome sights of blood-drenched bodies and entrails of sacrificed animals, lined up in open on streets and even main areterial roads.  Similarly, Namaaz being offered on roads was a recurrent cause of traffic disruptions, tension and flare ups.

The LG said this had been possible because of proactive cooperation by the Muslim community and its religious heads and underlined that in a diverse city like Delhi, everything could be achieved by dialogue and discussion.
