The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which ends the month of Ramadan, will be held in Bashkiria on May 24. It has always been traditionally accompanied by mass worship in mosques with the participation of a large number of believers.
At an operational meeting in the Government RB on May 18, the Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov said that the celebration of Eid al-Fitr this year would be held online by analogy with the celebration of Orthodox Easter. This decision was made after consultation with spiritual leaders.
