GHALLANAI: Though Eidul Azha will be celebrated across the country on Wednesday (tomorrow), some people in Mohmand Agency have decided to ignore the call and observe Eid today as per the advice of local clerics.
Some are observing Eid a day earlier as a symbol of Muslim unity since Saudi Arabia will also observe it on Tuesday. On the other hand, many Afghan refugees living in the country since 1979 choose to observe it with their native country.
Local clerics from the Deobandi school of thought observe Eid with Saudi Arabia after the Taliban in 2008 urged locals to unite in religious matters. However, clerics belonging to the Barelvi school of thought have decided to observe Eid with the rest of Pakistan.
Meanwhile, adherents of Deobandi in Charsadda have decided to stick to Peshawar’s Ruet-e-Hilal Committee’s call and will observe Eid with the rest of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) and Pakistan.
