Hyderabad: Milad-un-Nabi, the Birth Anniversary of the Prophet Mohammad, was celebrated on a low-key in Hyderabad owing to the pandemic and recent heavy rains and floods that battered several parts of the city.
The usual hustle-bustle particularly in the older parts of the city was missing this year, however, some localities were decorated and illuminated to mark the occasion.
Devout Muslims offered special prayers besides night-long prayers were organised in parts of the city.
Some organisations set up food and blood donation camps, while Sunni bodies took out processions to mark Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi.
Police imposed traffic restrictions diversions on several routes in view of the processions mostly in the older parts of the city.
The United Muslim Forum, meanwhile, accused France of indulging in “Islamophobia” and has urged Muslims to register their protest and send emails to the French embassy.
