eid-e-milad-un-nabi muslim festival - prophet muhammad's birthday (india)

Allahu Akbar!

This is the celebration of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi, Prophet Muhammad's Birthday.­

Milad un-Nabi is a gazetted holiday in India and is also known as Nabi Day and Mawlid.­ It is the occasion of large parades by the Muslim population.­

Actually, only Muslim men are parading in the street.­ Muslim women are not allowed to participate in those public festivities.­

I took these photos on January 25, 2013 on the road between Lucknow and Allahabad, probably in Raebareli.­

If you can recognize whether this is in Raebareli, please post a comment.­
