Jaipur, 26 Sep 2015: Mohammad Salim Engineer, Secretary General of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind delivered the Eid al-Adha sermon and led the prisoners in prayer inside the Jaipur Central Jail here on Friday. The Rajasthan unit of Jamaat had been continuously trying to arrange for Juma and Eid prayers in the central jail in the state capital.
“Just like we sacrifice animals on Eid al-Adha, we should vow to sacrifice our inner evils and personal compulsions in the way of Allah,” said Salim Engineer while addressing the prisoners in the Eid al-Adha sermon.
Expressing his concern for the innocents languishing in jails in false cases, Jamaat leader prayed for their early release. He said that it was religious as well as moral duty of the Muslim community to make efforts for their early release and look after their families.
“Eidul Azha (Eid al-Adha) is festival of sacrifice, love and brotherhood and therefor no one should be troubled from us,” said Salim Engineer while praying for peace and prosperity of the country.
