Ethiopian Muslims have celebrated 1439th Eid al Adha holiday across the country. In the capital Addis Ababa, tens of thousands of faithful celebrated it at the Addis Ababa Stadium, where there was a holiday prayer (Salat al-Eid Adha)
For nearly a decade Ethiopian Muslims have been resisting government attempt to interfere in the administrative affairs of Ethiopian Muslims and even imposition of new Islamic teachings. The attempt somewhat created division among the laity of Ethiopian Muslims.
The issue is now resolved following an effort by prime minister Abiy Ahmed and this year’s holiday is celebrated with a spirit of unity, according to Ethiopian Broadcasting corporation report.
