Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi, the Birthday of Prophet Muhammad (570-632) was celebrated with religious fervour across  India with   Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President  Ram Nath Kovind, VP M Venkaiah Naidu, Chief Ministers, Governors and other dignitaries recalling the contributions made by messiah to the world.  Several organizing committees decided not to take out Milad processions in view of COVID-19 pandemic. However, highlighting the life and teachings of Prophet Muhammad ‘Milad Mehfils’ and online ‘Seerat Conferences’ were held as in the previous years. In a message, President  Kovind said Prophet Muhammad gave the message of love and brotherhood and led the world to the path of humanity. He said Prophet Muhammad wanted to build a society based on equality and harmony. The President asked everyone to work for the well-being of society and peace and harmony in the country according to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad compiled in the Holy Quran.
In his message, Vice President said, the Holy Prophet showed humanity the righteous path of compassion and universal brotherhood.  Naidu said Milad-un-Nabi is an occasion for family and friends to come together and pray. He also urged people to celebrate Milad-un-Nabi in a modest way due to the pandemic, by strictly adhering to COVID-19 health and hygiene protocols. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has greeted people on Milad-un-Nabi. Modi hoped that this day furthers compassion and brotherhood all across. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in a tweet says  ‘’My best wishes and greetings to all on the occasion of Milad-un-Nabi, the birthday of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). May the spirit of love and service to humanity, tolerance and universal brotherhood, which the Holy Prophet preached, kindle our lives with joy’’. pix courtesy :DD News
