Sneha Mehra, South Zone DCP, told ANI, “It is a request that let us celebrate this festival of Eid together within the guidelines given by the department and by the government. We hope that once the sacrifices of the animals are completed, the waste material is properly disposed of in GHMC bins so that we can keep our city neat and clean. Once the animal carcass or any material is left outside this range, there is a high chance that diseases can spread.”

“We have ensured that proper arrangements are placed in all the masjids so that the prayers are completed peacefully. We will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the festival is celebrated peacefully,” she added.

Meanwhile, the prominent Muslim organization Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has also urged Muslims to follow the government’s guidelines and refrain from sharing pictures on social media.
