Jeep decorated with Mecca's al Kaaba, Islam's holiest shrine, on its roof, headed for the Milad un-Nabi street parade.
Strangely, there is a minaret sticking out from the Kaaba!
This is the celebration of Eid-Milad-un-Nabi, Prophet Muhammad's Birthday. Milad un-Nabi, also known as Nabi Day and Mawlid, is a gazetted holiday in India.
It is the occasion of large street parades and other festivities by the Muslim male population (Muslim women are not allowed to participate in those public festivities).
