Aurangabad, May 12:

The district collector Sunil Chavan has appealed to the Muslim brethren to celebrate Ramzan Eid in the district in a simple way and as per the guidelines of the state government.

A meeting with Muslim religious leaders was organised at the district collectorate to instruct on the Eid celebration today afternoon. The commissioner of police Nikhil Gupta, ZP chief executive officer Mangesh Gondawale, additional collector Anant Gavhane, resident deputy collector Sanjeev Jadhavwar, sub-divisional officer Rameshwar Rodge, assistant

commissioner (AMC) Nandkishore Bhombe and Muslim religious leaders were present in the meeting.

Chavan said that the Coronavirus is under control to some extent in the district. Hence, like the previous year, I appeal to celebrate Eid by staying at home only. Do not step out of the houses to offer special prayers, regular prayers or to meet any relatives. Avoid gathering of people at any cost, he said.

Gupta elaborated, Muslim brethren had co-operated the administration by following the rules and regulation during the whole month of Ramzan. Meanwhile, the ban on political and religious programmes, except the operation of essential commodities services. Hence to prevent the spread of the virus, the devotees should stay at home and celebrate Eid. The police administration is guarding 24x7 and co-operation in this regard is also needed.

Former mayor Rasheed Mamu assured the officials of all support by the community in celebrating Eid. We also will arrange special prayers to get rid of the Coronavirus.

Abdul Rasheed Madani also underlined that the Muslims will adhere to the guidelines of the state government while celebrating Eid.

Meanwhile, the Muslim devotees are appealed not to visit the mosque or gather at public places for offering regular prayers, special Taraweeh prayers or for iftar. All religious programmes should be conducted in closed doors. Plan to buy things to avoid the rush in the market. The handcarts and vendors are refrained from putting on the stalls as night curfew is imposed in the district. The citizens are told not to step out of their homes without any reasons. No religious, social, cultural or political programmes should be conducted. The worshipping places are closed for the devotees. As a result, the religious leaders, social workers, political leaders and NGOs should create awareness and encourage the devotees to celebrate Eid in a simple way by maintaining social distance, wearing the mask, using sanitisers or hand wash during the celebration.
