Eid celebrated with religious fervour

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 11 � Eid-ul-Fitre, the biggest festival of the Muslims � marking the end of the holy month of Ramazan and the month-long fasting � was celebrated with religious fervour and traditional gaiety across the State along with the rest of the country today.

In the city, the festival was celebrated in a befitting manner in the idgahs and masjids that had been colourfully decked up for the occasion.

Heavy showers, however, played spoilsport with the celebrations during the morning hours. As idgah fields became waterlogged and soggy, prayers were mostly offered in the mosques in batches.

The Machkhowa idgah played host to the biggest congregation of the devout Muslims, as people thronged the venue for offering namaaz since early morning. The mosques and idgahs at Athgaon, Lakhtokia, Garigaon, Jalukbari, Ulubari, Hatigaon, Islampur, Panjabari, etc., areas also witnessed good participation of the people.

After the prayers, the people exchanged pleasantries and sweets with friends and relatives.

In the afternoon, crowds were seen descending on the streets, dressed in their colourful attire. Homes of friends and relatives were visited, with people enjoying sumptuous Eid feasts amidst mirth and merry-making.

Cultural functions were also organized in the night at different localities.
