Eid-Ul-Fitr 2020: 5 Ways to Celebrate the Festival in Isolation

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way people lead their lives. Social distancing is the need of the hour and we can’t let our guard down even during festivals. Eid-ul-Fitr is one of the holiest festivals in Islam and is celebrated with loved ones. Under normal circumstances people would have gone to mosques to offer prayers, met and hugged their friends and family to extend the greetings.
