SRINAGAR — Grand Mufti Jammu and Kashmir Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam on Wednesday announced that the Eid-Ul-Adha festival will be celebrated on July 10 as the moon of Dhu al-Hijjah was not sighted on Wednesday evening.

According to news agency Kashmir News Service, the Grand Mufti of J&K said that the Dhu al-Hijjah moon was not sighted on Wednesday evening following which the Eid-ul- Adha will be celebrated on July 10.

“Dhu al-Hijjah moon has not been sighted today evening, so Eid-ul-Adha will be celebrated on July 10. There is a perception among some people that sacrificial animals are costly and they will offer ‘Sadka’ which is in no way acceptable in Islam as the condition for the day is the sacrifice of animals only,” Grand Mufti J&K Nasir-ul Islam said.
