Eid al-Fitr is one of the most important festivals celebrated by Muslims across the world. From giving alms to the needy, celebrating with family and friends to digging into mouth-watering iftari dishes — the festival marks joy, togetherness and peace. A quick look through social media, and you would know #EidMubarak greetings are also being shared online. In addition to the greetings, there are some rib-cracking jokes doing the rounds as well. From obvious references to biryani, Eidi and the (kind of sad) fact that some people have to go to work on the ‘public holiday’, these tweets sure make for a laugh riot.
Here are some of the posts doing the rounds of the micro-blogging site.

In last 30 years, we have moved from mail to email, commerce to ecommerce, and Id to Eid. #EidMubarak.

Well, not just tweets such as these, there are Eid-special videos too generating a lot of buzz on social media sites. Starting from the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wishing Muslims across the world Eid Mubarak to a viral video of a Muslim guy who wanted to break his roza with the Hindus at the India Gate, the Internet is rife with anything and everything pertaining to the popular Muslim festival and its celebrations. This video in particular, has become extremely popular on the Internet because of the current context of communal tension in the world. The young Muslim man who was fasting during Ramadan took up a social experiment— to break his fast with Hindus, standing at the India Gate blindfolded and holding a placard which says “Main ek ‘Musalman’ Hu….Aaj Mera Roza hai…Main Chahta hu ki mera Roza…Hindu Bhaiyo ke saath kholu…’Jai Hind’ (I am a Muslim, I have kept roza today, I want to break my roza with Hindu brothers”. Watch the video here to know if he succeeded or not.
