Aizawl: A mass prayer to celebrate Eid al-Adha was held by the Muslim community in Mizoram, much like the faithfuls across the world. However, what stood out was the fact the prayer was organised next to a church at a community ground in Aizawl, the capital of Christian-majority Mizoram.

Every year on Eid, Muslim faithfuls in the hill state of Mizoram would come together at this spot to offer their prayers. The High School ground is located at Zarkawt, which is 15 minutes from the Aizawl mosque.

The mosque, established in 1909, is quite small to accommodate large gatherings. So, it is primarily used for Friday prayers.
