AIUDF Chief Badruddin Ajmal asks people to refrain from Eid shopping


GUWAHATI: Amid reports of people thronging markets for Eid shopping in different parts of Assam, All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) Chief and Lok Sabha MP from Dhubri Constituency Maulana Badruddin Ajmal has urged people to refrain from Eid shopping in view of COVID-19 pandemic.

“Please refrain yourself from shopping for Eid. Wearing new clothes in Eid is not Farz, so kindly stop endangering your own and other people’s lives by crowding the market place in the time of Covid-19. Else it won’t be shopping for Eid but you would be shopping for death,” Ajmal said in a video shared in his official Twitter account.

“I am saddened to see some Muslim women are going shopping in Hojai, Kolgachia and Barpeta. Are you buying clothes or death,” he asked.

The AIUDF supremo appealed everyone to follow lockdown norms.
