On this Bakrid festival, both the honorable Prime Minister and the President wished for harmony and brotherhood in the whole society.
The festival is honors and remembered for the compliances and willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, as an act of obedience to God’s command. Earlier than he sacrificed his son in memorial of this, an animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: one-third of the share is given to the poor and needy; another third is given to relatives, friends, and neighbors; and the remaining will be shared within the family.
Greetings to all my fellow citizens, especially to my Muslim brothers & sisters in India & abroad, on Idu’l Zuha #PresidentKovind

Like Eid al-Fitr, or Eid al-Adha started with a prayer of two rakats, followed by a sermon.
Traditionally and conventionally, the festival of Eid al-Adha is celebrated and rejoices two days after the beginning of the Hajj pilgrimage. The starting date of this festival totally depends on the sighting of the new crescent moon.
This festival begins on the 10th day of one of the holiest months of the Islam calendar.
