Today is the Muslim holiday of Eid. As I’m in Norway and not in India, I must admit that there is not really any huge celebration going on here. But last year, I made a blog post of the celebration that time.
This year the festival has in some way been overshadowed by the riots in Assam. Assam is a state in the North-Eastern part of India. During the last few weeks, there have been major riots here. It seems like the main reason for this is a clash between Hindus and Muslims. Many of the Muslims are said to be refuges from Bangladesh. This riot has now spread to other parts of India, and it will be interesting to see how this affects the celebration and also the daily life in India.
But until then; have a very happy Eid everyone!
Talk to you soon!
