The department of minority welfare, Haj and Wakf has banned the offering of Namaz at open grounds on the occasion of Eid-al-Adha (Bakrid), Daiji World has reported.

As per the guidelines, besides a ban on Namaz at Idgah grounds, only 50 people will be permitted to offer Namaz inside mosques. No other place will be allowed to host a Namaz.

Even while entering a mosque to offer Namaz, individuals have to compulsorily wear a mask and those above the age of 60 and below the age of 10 will not be allowed to enter.

Mosques have been asked to ensure a distance of at least 6 feet between every individual and only allow entry after recording temperature via thermal scanning.

Bakrid will be celebrated on 31 July in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Kodagu regions and the rest of the state will celebrate it on 1 August.
