New Delhi: The Jama Masjid in Delhi remained largely deserted on the occasion of Eid al-Adha Wednesday due to Covid-19 protocols in place.
Amid concerns about a possible third wave, the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Shah Bukhari, had also appealed to devotees to offer prayers at home. Only a limited number of people, 15-20 at a time, were allowed to offer namaz at the mosque.
To maintain law and order, and prevent crowding, Delhi Police and CRPF were also stationed outside the mosque.
