Ramadan to begin in Kerala from Friday

Thiruvananthapuram, April 23 (IANS) Muslim clerics in Kerala on Thursday announced that the holy month of Ramadan would begin on Friday.

But with the Covid-19 lockdown norms in place, there has been a blanket ban on all forms of public gatherings and hence this is going to be similar to what the Christians had to face during the Easter season.

Ramadan is the month of fasting, in which adult Muslims don’t eat or drink anything from dawn until sunset.

Muslims in Kerala constitute 88.73 lakh (41.76 lakh males and 46.97 lakh females) of the 3.30 crore population.
