Kurban Bayram Holiday
Celebration of the Kurban Bayram holiday started on July 31. The Public Defender of Georgia congratulates the Muslim citizens of Georgia on this very important holiday and wishes them peace and happiness.
The idea of Kurban Bayram is related to the ban on human sacrifice. Traditionally, during the holiday, Muslim families sacrifice animals and distribute them among relatives and neighbours regardless of their religious beliefs. Therefore, Kurban Bayram is also the celebration of the idea of charity and its special importance.
Kurban Bayram, i.e. festival of sacrifice, lasts for three days and is marked 70 days after the Ramadan Bayram holiday.
