Street protests erupted in parts of Srinagar after Eid prayers. In Uttar Pradesh, the country's most populous state, the festival was celebrated with traditional enthusiasm. Aishbagh Eidgah - the biggest prayer ground in the Lucknow city - as well as mosques in the city overflowed with the devout. "We prayed for the country's prosperity and communal harmony," Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahli, a prominent Sunni cleric who heads Lucknow's oldest Islamic seminary, said.
