The festival is being celebrated in India on Tuesday following the Islamic holy month of Ramzan.
The month-long fasting observed by the people of the Muslim community during Ramzan came to an end after the sighting of the crescent moon on Monday evening. Ramzan, notably, is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad. It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which involves rigorous fasting for about 30 days.
