    Ramzan begins, Delhi mosques see huge gatherings

    New Delhi, Sept. 14 (PTI): Thousands of Muslims gathered at mosques across the capital to break their fasts in the evening as the holy month of Ramzan began. There was a heavy rush at the sweets, fruits and chhat stalls adjacent to these mosques as people broke their 'rozas' (fasts) at sun set (6.29 pm) and then offered their namaaz. Nearly 15,000 people gathered at the each of Fatehpuri Masjid and Jama Masjid, the two prominent mosques in Central Delhi.

    "We have installed sirens which will be blown at the time of both the prayers of 'Shehar' and 'Iftar' so that people do not face any problem," Mufti M Mukarram Ahmed, Shahi Imam of Fatehpuri Mosque, told PTI. Mukarram said tomorrow the fasting will begin at 4.43 am and end at 6.29 pm.

    Nawabuddin Naqshbandi, a member of the Jama Masjid managing committee, said they had made necessary arrangements to facilitate people who are fasting. Policemen were also deployed at mosques to control the crowd. Apart from this, mosques' authorities made special arrangements with their volunteers.
