Jalna, May 18 (PTI) Muslim community leaders in Jalna

in Maharashtra on Monday said they have requested the

administration to not allow shops to open for Eid festivities

as it could dilute the lockdown in place for the coronavirus

outbreak.

The month of Ramzan is currently on and Eid-ul-Fitr is

likely to fall on May 24-25, they said.

"On behalf of the Muslim community here, we have

submitted a memorandum to the district collector to not allow

the opening of shops. The Muslim community has decided to

celebrate Eid with simplicity during this tough time by

helping the poor and needy," said Jamaat-e-Islami-Hind state

unit secretary Shaikh Mujeeb.

Jamiat Ulema Marathwada unit vice president Maulana

Nasrullah Hussaini said the administration, doctors, and

thousands of frontline workers are fighting to contain the

outbreak, and it was the duty of all people to cooperate.

"Eid shopping and crowding may lead to violation of

social distancing norms and could result in the spread of the

disease," he said.

City Kazi Mufti Abdul Rahman said Eid namaaz can be

offered at home, while social activist Nazim Sarkar said

people should use the festival to help others during these

distressing times. PTI COR
