Kerala Muslims celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr

Thiruvananthapuram: Muslims in Kerala Saturday celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr with religious fervor, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan spent in fasting, prayers and charity.

Mosques and idgahs across the state witnessed heavy rush of devotees since early morning.

Religious scholars delivered sermons at mosques urging devotees to uphold values of love, compassion, fraternity and social harmony.

Charitable organisations distributed new clothes and gifts among inmates of 'yatim-khanas' (orphanages managed by Muslims) in various parts of the state.

Sumptuous feasts with an array of ethnic delicacies were prepared as part of the festivities in Muslim homes.

Kerala Governor Justice (retd) P Sathasivam, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan greeted people on the occasion.

"It is a solemn custom highlighted by self-discipline, sacrifice and actions of charity and generosity. This year's Ramadan, I am sure, will add to the social harmony, strengthening the bond of brotherhood, mutual love and fraternity among the people," the Governor said in his message.
