Bakrid 2021: UP, Assam Ban Gatherings; Supreme Court Slams Kerala On Relaxing Covid-19 Norms

INDIA Team Latestly|

Bakri Eid, Bakrid or Eid-ul-Adha will be celebrated on July 21 in India. State governments across the country have issued fresh Covid-19 guidelines to rule out any possibility of the festival adding to the risk of spreading the coronavirus. The Uttar Pradesh government on July 19 issued new directives ahead of Eid-ul-Adha, restricting gatherings to only 50 people at any place to celebrate the festival. It has also ordered against animal sacrifice at public places in the state. The Assam government too disallowed public congregation in the state in view of the festival. State Health Minister Keshab Mahanta urged the people to celebrate the festival within the confines of their homes. A maximum of five persons at a time will be allowed for prayers at mosques. Amid consistently high coronavirus cases in Kerala, the Pinarayi Vijayan government has lifted lockdown restrictions for three days for celebration of Bakrid. In a statement on July 18, the IMA had urged the government to immediately withdraw the order regarding Bakrid and enforce zero tolerance towards any Covid-19 norm violations. On July 20, the Supreme Court of India said this was "wholly uncalled for”. Watch the video to know more.
