The Imams requested the people to maintain peace and harmony in the town. They said that, the Qurbani is a sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The main objective of this ritual is to remember the supreme sacrifice offered by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and to sacrifice our wishes in-front of Allah’s command.

They said, Prophet Ibrahim A.S was able to sacrifice his son, Allah replaced Prophet Ismail A.S with a sheep, thus, sparing his life, that is why Muslims remember this momentous event by sacrificing a sheep, camel, cow, or goat, and sharing the meat from the sacrifice to others, especially the poor, they added.

At the end, the Imams prayed for world peace, unity among Muslim nations, progress for the people and the country’s prosperity.

Police department had made elaborate security arrangements for the peaceful celebration of Eid which was headed by Uttara Kannada SP Vinayak Patil and Bhatkal ASP Shiv Kumar. CPI Suresh amongst other police officials was present at the occasion.

The festival is celebrated on the 10th day of Zul Hijja, which is the 12th month of the Islamic calendar.

The festival falls 70 days after the month of Ramzan and is celebrated after the Haj, the annual pilgrimage to Makkah in Saudi Arabia.
