Kerala floods make Eid low key affair

With rains and subsequent floods battering Kerala for the past few days, Eid celebrations in various parts of the state on Monday was a low key affair, which started and ended with prayers.

Of the 3.34 crore Kerala population, Muslims account for 88.73 lakh. A large number of Muslims live in districts like Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kannur and Kasargode which are the worst flood affected areas.

Over 1,25 lakh people are living in relief camps. Hence, it was just the routine morning prayers for them.

Clerics across the state addressed the gathering at mosques and urged them to extend a helping hand to the flood victims.
