IS bans Eid-ul-Fitr prayers in Iraqi city

Ismat Rajab, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official for Mosul who now lives in the Kurdistan region, said that the radical group has warned residents to avoid prayers for Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan in about a week.

He said ISIS was claiming that the Eid prayer is not “originally an Islamic practice” and was not performed in Prophet Muhammad’s time.

Since the ISIS takeover of Mosul last year, the militants have been imposing new rules and regulations, backed by strict punishments that include the threat of death for offenders.
