TEHRAN (IQNA) – People in the Indian-administered Kashmir celebrated Eid al-Ghadir on Saturday while observing the health protocols to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

 

The ceremonies in Srinagar and elsewhere in the Himalayan region were held with fewer attendees than previous years due to the pandemic.

Speakers highlighted different aspects of Ghadir and the virtues of Imam Ali (AS), the first Shia Imam.

Similar events were held in other parts of India, including the cities of Lucknow and Amroha in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

The event of Ghadir, or Eid al-Ghadir, is celebrated by Shia Muslims around the world every year. It is among important feasts and happy holidays of Shia Muslims held on the 18th day of Dhul Hijja in the lunar Hijri calendar.

It was the day when according to reports, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) appointed Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS) as his caliph and the Imam after himself following an order from God.
