The Bengal Imams Association on Sunday urged members of the Muslim group to not maintain Eid prayers in massive teams in view of the spike in COVID-19 circumstances.
Chairman of the affiliation, which represents over 26,000 mosques in Bengal, Mohammed Yahiya, instructed reporters that prayers must be held in very small teams and in adherence to COVID-19 protocols.
“As the entire healthcare system in the country is under severe stress due to the emerging situation, we should be careful not to allow assembly of people during prayers.
“If we will train restraint and observe each essential restriction required to cease the unfold, we’ll avert the third wave,” he stated.
Eid-ul-Fitr is more likely to be celebrated on May 13 or May 14 relying on the sighting of the moon.
