Patna Eid Guidelines: This time also, Bakrid prayers will not be performed at Gandhi Maidan and other public places, read the guidelines here
Amidst the Corona epidemic, the festival of Bakrid will be celebrated across the country on July 21. But this time also Eid prayers will not be offered at Gandhi Maidan amidst the shadow of Corona. Eid prayers in public places have been banned by the district administration (Namaz Ban In Gandhi Maidan). He has made it clear that there will be a ban on offering Namaz in Idgah, Masjid and public places. Also, keeping in mind the safety of the people, they have been asked to offer Eid prayers at home.
The administration is in no mood to take any kind of negligence on the decreasing cases of corona in Bihar and between the unlock. This is the reason that like every time, Eid prayers will not be offered at Gandhi Maidan in Patna this time. According to Sadar Mahmood Alam, a member of the Namaz Edain Committee, it is because of the Corona Protocol that no permission has been given to offer Namaz at Gandhi Maidan.
This time too, there is a ban on Namaz in Gandhi Maidan.
Last year also Eid prayers were not offered at Gandhi Maidan due to Corona infection. People had offered namaz at home itself. This year also the situation is not very good. For this reason, Namaz has not been approved by the administration. The administration says that Eid prayers should be offered by staying at home, so that people remain safe. Bihar Sunni and Shia Waqf Board has also issued a letter regarding this. He said that Bakrid prayers should not be offered in the mosque.
