Eid ul-Adha or Bakr Eid was celebrated on Sunday, July 10, in India and Pakistan. Eid ul-Adha is celebrated on the tenth day of Dhu al-Hijjah, which is the 12th month of the Islamic or lunar calendar. The day marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. Every year, the date for Eid ul-Adha changes since it is based on the Islamic lunar calendar, which is about 11 days shorter than the Western 365-day Gregorian calendar.

Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers had also exchanged sweets at the Attari-Wagah and the India-Pakistan International Border in Gujarat, and in the Barmer sector of Rajasthan to mark the occasion.
