Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan extended sweet Eid wishes to their fans, celebrating Eid-ul-Adha. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia greeted Delhiites on the festival.

The first one being Eid-al-Fitr, and the second one Eid-al-Adha-it is considered the holier of the two. Amid the pandemic outbreak, the faithful maintained social distancing and wore face covers as they visited mosques in the city to offer prayers.

At Delhi's Fatehpuri Masjid, the devotees were seen offering prayers while following all COVID-19 norms.

"We have ensured that we are cautious that we don't hug each other".


As the world's biggest Muslim-majority country struggles to contain the spread of the virus, worshippers were advised to maintain social distancing during the prayers.

"Eid al-Adha means Eid of sacrifices".

With the number of people allowed to gather in indoor spaces limited due to COVID-19, Croke Park, which normally hosts games of hurling and Gaelic football to crowds of up to 82,300, was chosen as a venue.

Instead the donated sheep, goats and cows will be killed in abattoirs to mark the "Feast of the Sacrifice,", celebrated by Muslims around the world to commemorate Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail at God's command.
