Extended Ban On Social Gathering To Affect Eid ul-Fitr Celebrations

Mahamudu Bawumia and The Chief Imam

Muslims, who are currently in the month of Ramadan, will have to celebrate a different kind of Eid ul-Fitr this year.

Eid ul-Fitr which is celebrated to mark the end of the month of Ramadan is traditionally marked by Muslims attending the mosque and making merry afterwards.

However, with the coronavirus pandemic still hanging over our heads, President Akufo Addo has announced the extension of the ban on social gathering to May 31.

This means, Eid ul-Fitr which falls on May 24 will be affected by the ban on social gathering.

Muslims will not be allowed to gather in mosques and they have to limit their merry-making to their individual households.

Last April, Christians had to mark Easter under a partial lockdown.

Coronavirus is taking its toll on religious activities.
