The All Manipur Muslim Development Organisation (AMMDO) appealed to the people of the state particularly Muslim brethren to celebrate Eid al-Fitr festival in low key following strict COVID-19 SOPs.

A release by AMMDO has stated that ‘Eid al-Fitr’ is one of the biggest festivals of Muslim community. To avoid any kind of fallout during the crucial time of pandemic, people must celebrate the festival in a humble manner maintaining strict COVID-19 SOPs and protocol.

As the situation is worsening each day, every individual should take the responsibility in fighting the disease, it added.

Wishing the people for peace and unity in the state by the coming of Eid al-Fitr, AMMDO stated that due to the ongoing pandemic, AMMDO could not organise ‘Iftar’ party for this year.

The release also condemned the recent case of suspicious death of a bride-to-be from Uchiwa. The state government should punish all the persons involved in the case and deliver quick justice for the victim, it added.

Meanwhile, the All-Manipur Muslim Students' Organisation (AMMSO) extended its greetings for Eid al-Fitr and appealed to the people to perform only the religious activities as part of the festival in order to control the spread of COVID-19 second wave.

A release by AMMSO also appealed to the state police personnel who are no duty to be gentle and soft in handling the Muslim people while they are offering prayers and Ziyarat during the Eid festival. It also urged all the shop owners and traders in the state to not hike the prices of commodities during the crucial time of the pandemic.

“As the Ramzan month has come to end, let us pray for good health and prosperity in the state by the coming of Eid al-Fitr,” said AMMSO in the release.
