Muslims Celebrate Eid Ul Fitr Freely After Two Years Of Covid

Muslims are today celebrating Eid Ul Fitr freely after two long years of Covid straining them from even meeting together.

This celebration marks the end of their 30 days of fasting that they started last month. Unlike all the previous two years, this time round, Muslims have flooded mosques in such great numbers to start their day in prayer so as to bless it.

Unfortunately, Eid Ul Fitr has come at a time when prices of all commodities are so high. As we speak, a litre of cooking oil is at 10,000, soap is at 10,000 and much more.

However, the day still has to be celebrated somehow and even as you move around, Muslims are surely preparing for it. Not even the hikened prices can stop them.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister has congratulated the Muslim community for reaching this day even on behalf of the head of State.

“I want to congratulate the Muslim community for reaching this day. I bring greetings from the Head of State, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. There is power in unity, the NRM government gives freedom of worship. I appreciate you for supporting the government.”

However, due to the tight economic situation in the country, some Muslims have admitted that surely they don’t have the money to celebrate their day.

Fortunately, usually, they invite each other to celebrate Eid together. This could save some families that don’t have what to eat.
