In Pictures: A silent Eid, yet again

Posted on

As the COVID cases in Kashmir continue to rise amidst the lockdown, Kashmir yet again celebrated a silent Eid on Thursday.

Traffic mostly remained off the roads as tight restrictions were put in place since early morning. However there were some small community gatherings seen in some places to offer eid prayers.
