Online Desk:

Eid-ul-Azha prayers were held in Italy in a solemn and festive atmosphere. Expatriate Bangladeshis, along with immigrants from different countries, perform Eid prayers in mosques and open fields in every city, including Italy’s capital Rome, Venice, Milan, Genoa, Monfalcone, Naples, Treviso, Bologna. The prayer congregation started at 6 am local time and continued till 9:30 am. 5 congregations are held in the Central Jama Masjid of Baitul Mamur, Venice. About 3,000 devout Muslims performed Eid prayers there. Forgetting all differences, leaders of political, social and regional organizations participated in the Jamaat. As it was not a holiday, many Bangladeshi people could not pray. Besides, many Muslims go to work without spending time with family members after performing Eid prayers. According to Italian law, religious Muslims sacrifice animals at certain places after offering prayers. On the occasion of the holy Eid-ul-Azha, the current president of Italian social organization Bhairab Venice Parishad, Kazi Ronak, wished all the Bangladeshi expatriates a holy Eid.
