Hyderabad | 7th July 2016
Eid-ul-Fitr (Ramzan) was celebrated in Telangana on Thursday with religious fervour and gaiety.

Lakhs of devout Muslims of all ages thronged the idgahs, mosques and open spaces in huge numbers and participated in the special prayers.

Huge gatherings were witnessed at Charminar, Macca Masjid, the Mir Alam Idgah and the popular Secunderabad mosques in the capital. Even in places in interior Telangana including Adilabad, Bhainsa, Nizamabad, Mahabubnagar and other towns, Muslims started their Ramzan celebrations early in the morning, and participated in special prayers.

The main congregation in Hyderabad was held at the Mir Alam Idgah where a large number of Muslims participated in the special prayers.

Almost all the Muslims prayed wearing new white clothes. After the prayers, they hugged each other and exchanged greetings, saying "Eid mubarak" to each other.

The imams and other priests who addressed the gatherings exhorted the attendees to continue good deeds even after Ramzan so that they could succeed in life.

The police deployed a huge force in the Old City keeping the ISIS threat to Hyderabad and the recent arrest of ISIS sympathizers in mind. The traffic police also diverted the traffic in the Old City to facilitate smooth movement.

In Siddipet in the Medak district, Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao extended greetings to Muslims at the local idgah. Speaking on the occasion, Rao said that the Eid-ul-Fitr festival reflected secularism. The TRS government was wedded to the welfare of the minorities, and had established 121 minority residential schools for the sake of Muslim children, he claimed.
