Bakrid is also known as Eid-ul-Azha. Goats are sacrificed at today's festival. The festival of Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated 70 days after the end of the holy month of Ramadan. This festival is celebrated on the 10th of the 12th month according to the Islamic calendar. Last year, Eid was celebrated following the Corona rules due to the Corona epidemic, which will be seen this year as well.
Let us tell you that there are three different types of Eid in the Muslim community, namely Eid-us-Fitr, Eid-al-Adha, and Eid-e-Milad. All these festivals give the message of brotherhood and humanity. Sacrifice is given among Muslims on this day, hence it is also called Eid-e-Kurba. Id-e-Qurbaan means 'spirit of sacrifice' and 'qarb' refers to living near or very close.
