HYDERABAD: All residents are set to celebrate Eid-Ul-Adha in the Old City of Hyderabad after the lifting of the lockdown and restrictions by the state government. The people moved around freely in the markets to buy livestock that arrived from different states.
The hectic activity, eve of Eid-ul-Adha, is popularly known as the festival of sacrifice, which falls on the 10 days of the Islamic month of Zil-Hajjah. Markets teemed with activity as more and more people thronged to buy livestock and groceries at several places in the Old City. Traffic was seen slowing down at many points due to the animal sacrifice points set up along the roadside.
Many people made a beeline to the livestock sale points at Chanchalguda, City College, Khilwat, Falaknuma, Darulshifa, Hussaini Alam, Jiyaguda, Jhirrah, Ring Road, Bahadurpura, Mehdipatnam, Nanal Nagar and Towli Chowki.
Shepherds from Karnataka and Maharashtra were reportedly unhappy with sales at Khilwat ground. “The shepherds from Karnataka and Maharashtra are upset with sale and prices. However, we are providing basic amenities and space for the livestock in the ground,” said Mohammed Ghouse, MIM co-corporator of Ghansi Bazaar.
Moreover, prayers scheduled were declared by Eid-gah and mosque committees, who asked devotees to make sure to wear masks and follow Covid-19 norms.
