Some Indonesian Muslims Celebrate Aidiladha Saturday.

Some Muslims in Indonesia celebrated Hari Raya Aidiladha Saturday because they believed that the Aidiladha prayers should be held after the Wukuf in Arafah.

The Wukuf was on Friday as set by the Saudi government.
However, the majority of Muslims in the country will celebrate Aidiladha Sunday together with Muslims in Malaysia.

Despite the opinion differences, no untoward incidents were reported. In South Jakarta, thousands of Muslims performed the Aidiladha prayers at Masjid Agung Al-Azhar and thousands more at Masjid Al-Furqon in Central Jakarta.

Antara news agency reported from Solo in Central Java that nearly 40,000 performed the Aidiladha prayers at the Manahan Solo Stadium while in Yogyakarta, about 1,500 people did so at the Mandala Krida Stadium.(Bernama)

To all Muslim readers of this blog -
Selamat Hari Raya Korban.
