Previous association priest and senior Karnataka Congress pioneer CM Ibrahim has asked Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa to permit open supplications at mosques and Idgah grounds on the event of Eid-ul-Fitr.
Ibrahim, who is an individual from the Legislative Council, has composed a letter to Yediyurappa asking him to lift the limitation on social event at strict places on the event of Eid during the coronavirus-constrained lockdown. “The prayer assemblies could be allowed in the state till 1 pm on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr,” Ibrahim said in the letter.
“Due to the pandemic Covid-19, the Muslims all over the state are not able to offer namaz in the masjids and are offering prayers in their homes as per the government orders. The Eid-ul-Fitr festival in the state may be celebrated on the 24th or 25th May, during which Muslims have to offer special prayers,” he stated in the letter.
Ibrahim also solicit the Chief Minister to take suggestion from medical experts before reaching to any decision.“I request you kindly to look into the matter after consulting medical experts, take a suitable decision enabling Muslims all over the state to offer prayers in their respective localities,” he said.
