The event devoted to Eid al-Adha is prohibited from being conduct in the territory of the mosque in Bakhchysarai, the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umer posted on his Facebook page. 

“Today I learned that the residents of the 6th district in Bakhchysarai wanted to hold an event dedicated to Eid al-Adha at the mosque on Saturday, September 17. However, the Mufti of Crimea E.Ablaev forbade the religious community chairman to give permission to hold the event, referring to the FSB and the so-called Ministry of Internal Politics,” he wrote.

Reference. Eid al-Adha is one of the largest holidays of Islam, marking the end of the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca. It is marked 70 days after Eid al-Fitr holiday, on the tenth day of the month of Dhu’l Hijjah, in memory of the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim.
