The people belonging to the Dawoodi Bohra community in Pakistan and around the world are celebrating Eid al-Fitr amid the restrictions due to the novel coronavirus.
Eid prayers were offered in various cities including Karachi, attended by a large number of people belonging to the Bohra community.
The largest Eid prayer gathering of the Bohra community in Karachi was held at the Taheri Mosque in the Saddar area.
Special prayers were also offered for the country’s prosperity, sovereignty, and law, order by the community. However, people traditionally embraced each other during the celebration of the Bohra community.
Special security arrangements were made and a large contingent of Rangers and Police officials were stationed at all the Bohra mosques.
The Spiritual Head of the Bohra community has also instructed the members to follow all government norms during the ongoing Covid lockdown.
Back in September 2017, around 20, 000 people attended a religious discourse by the spiritual leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community, His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, at the Taheri Mosque.
Among the attendees were Governor Mohammad Zubair, former chief minister Murad Ali Shah, Senator Saleem Mandviwalla, Muttahida Qaumi Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar and Mayor Wasim Akhtar.
