Ujjain : The city is gearing up for Eid-ul-Adha or Bakrid, the second most important Muslim festival after Eid. The Dawoodi Bohras celebrated Bakrid on Wednesday, a few days ahead of other Muslims, as they follow the Egyptian calendar.

Mosques, Eidgahs and shrines are being decked up even as bazaars are abuzz with hordes of people buying new clothes, footwear, jewellery and perfumes. Housewives are busy stocking a variety of masala (spices) to prepare sheer korma, biryani and mutton korma on the occasion.

At the Quadri Masjid located near Majar-e-najami the masjid manager Shekh Mustafa administered the Namaj. Qurbani was offered in the afternoon by observing shabab. A massive feast was organized at the Burhani hall in the evenings, which was attended by hundreds of Boharas.
