Muslims celebrate Aidiladha on a moderate scale

Muslims all over the country today celebrated Aidiladha on a moderate scale, but with a sense of gratitude and the spirit of sacrifice.

They attended prayers at mosques and surau and slaughtered animals such as cows and goats to mark the festival of sacrifice which comes at the end of the annual Haj pilgrimage.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak attended prayers at the National Mosque in Kuala Lumpur.

In Perlis and Kedah, the festival comes at a time when some 70,000 people are putting their houses in order in the wake of the massive floods earlier this month which had driven them to relief centres.

They are grateful though that they did not have to celebrate the occasion at the relief centres.
