Jaipur, July 29 - Eid-ul-Fitr was celebrated with gaiety and fervour in Rajasthan Tuesday.

Prayers were offered at congregations held at various places. In state capital Jaipur, thousands of Muslims gathered to offer prayers at Idgah on the outskirts of the city and Jama Masjid in Johri Bazar area.

We offered prayers for the dead in Gaza and denounced Israel's attacks on innocent people, Khalid Usmani, president of All India Darul Qazat (AIDQ) told IANS.

People attired in new clothes were seen greeting each other and distributing sweets after performing namaaz in the morning. In some places, Hindus also exchanged greetings with Muslims.
