    Srinagar: Like elsewhere in country, Muslim s in Kashmir are all set to celebrate Eid Ul Adha on Saturday which marks the sacrifice of Ismail by his father Abraham for the God’s will, with religious fervour and gaiety.

    Market are full with the Eid customers and also a market checking squad is keeping an eye on prices of various things and the hikes which shopkeepers use to get more gains on their goods on this very special festival.

    Elaborate arrangements have been made to help city Muslims offer Namaz Eid Ul Adha at various open places, Eidgah and mosques.

    “We have chosen open spaces as the turnout of devotees will be more. Masjids will overflow with devotees as it is compulsory to offer namaz on this auspicious day,” said Ashiq Ahmad, a local resident.

    He said areas housing Masjids would witness traffic jams and that was the reason open spaces were identified to help devotees offer prayers in comfort.

    He said prayers could be offered at early morning in most of the places “In all places we have made separate arrangements for women also,” he added.
