Officials in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, have decided to coordinate the celebrations of Eid-e-Milad and Ganesh Visarjan on September 28, aiming to maintain communal harmony in the state. A group of Muslim community representatives initially sought permission for an Eid procession on the evening of September 28.
However, recognizing the potential for tension and clashes, the City Police Commissioner proposed an alternative solution. To prevent any untoward incidents and promote communal harmony, it was suggested that Eid processions be rescheduled to September 29, a day after Ganesh Visarjan. The delegation of Muslim community representatives agreed to this proposal, facilitating a smoother Ganesh Visarjan process on September 28 and reducing the risk of communal tensions.
