LONDON - The Muslim world is today celebrating Eid al-Fitr to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan amid measures to curb the coronavirus pandemic, which include the suspension of Eid prayers, outdoor festivals, and other celebratory events.
Countries such as Turkey, Qatar and Indonesia have suspended most Eid-related activities, including morning prayers.
In Saudi Arabia, mosques will be broadcasting the call to Eid prayers, but no worshippers will be allowed to attend, with people told to perform the prayers at home, similar to measures throughout Ramadan this year.
Muslim populations, such as those in North and Latin America, will also be celebrating under lockdowns and related restrictions.(FA)
