Background: The Muslims of India celebrated Id Ul Zuha with great enthusiasm all over India on 28th June, 1958. This is the day when goats and sheep are sacrificed in worship and then mutton distributed amongst friends and relatives. But the main colourful item is the NIMAZ or worship which commences in the morning. Multitude of humanity ranging from children to grand fathers turns up at the historic Jama Masjid of Delhi for the holy Nimaz. They fall in lines and follow the prayers. Children and ladies are clad in colourful clothes. Outside plenty of sheep is on sale for those who have been late in shopping. There are special joy rides for children while their parents offer prayers.
