My India. Islamic festival of Eid-ul-fitr

Land of varied cultures and different religions, India celebrates a number of different festivals. One such festival is the Islamic festival of Eid-ul-fitr which is celebrated by Muslims with great fervour not only in India but all across the world. This year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic the festival was kept a low-key affair.

The month of Ramadan brings with itself teachings of self-discipline, sacrifice and control. Observed for a span of 30 days, the Islamic festival is not only celebrated with great fervour and enthusiasm in India but also around the world.

Just like the beginning of Ramadan, the religious month ends with the first sighting of a new moon marked as the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr.

Every year, the festival of Eid-ul-fitr commonly known as Eid is celebrated with zeal and colour in different cities of India but this year the festival was kept a low key affair in the wake of the resurge of Covid-19 cases.
