The sports fraternity came together to wish their fans and loved ones ‘Eid Mubarak’ on the occasion of Eid Al Adha, also known as Bakrid. Rohit Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Rashid Khan and Darren Sammy were some of the cricketers to lead the wishes along with Sania Mirza, Jwala Gutta and the Indian football team.
Promoting the message of love, joy and peace, sports stars took to Twitter to greet their fans. In India, Eid al-Adha was marked on Saturday, August 1, even though many countries celebrated on Friday (July 31), as per the date announced by Saudi Arabia. But the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid had said that Bakrid will be celebrated on Saturday as per the citing of the moon.
Wishing everyone celebrating, a happy Eid al-Adha. Hope we all get to celebrate occasions and moments like we otherwise would. Till then, let’s all keep taking care and staying safe.

Resist that desire to give a hug today. In a year when countless people have lost their lives and livelihoods, may Allah ease the suffering around the globe. Every Eid we pray for good health, peace and happiness but hope this #EidAlAdha is more ‘Mubarak’ than ever before! 🤲
