No congregational prayers to be allowed on Eid - ul - Adha : Govt


Srinagar, July 19 : 

The government on Sunday said no congregational prayers will be allowed on Eid-ul-Adha in view of predictions about third wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Pandurang K Pole said that there will be no congregational prayers on Eid in Kashmir valley as the limited number of people allowed in any sort of gathering is just 25, which he said will be difficult to maintain if congregational prayers are allowed.
 
He said the prayers will be allowed in a decentralised way like it was allowed during the peak of Covid-19 second wave.
 
“ As any sort of gathering is limited to 25, which included Eid gatherings or congregational prayers, so these prayers will not be allowed.

“ Limiting the number of people to 25 would be difficult if congregational prayers are allowed on Eid, so the prayers will be allowed in a decentralised way, there will be no congregational prayers,” he said. 
 
He also said people must follow government SOPs and medical experts' instructions on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha.
 
Pole said considering the damage caused by the third wave of Covid-19 in other countries, everyone should follow the guidelines and precautions strictly on the occasion of the upcoming Eid-ul-Adha with regard to the pandemic.
 
He said the third wave of Covid-19 has become a reality in other countries and in view this the government of India has also taken steps against it and people have to follow them to tackle the corona threat.
 
Pole said that the coming days will be very crucial and urged people to continue their fight against the pandemic by strictly following the physical distancing norms and use of masks.
