Muslims are being urged not to hold Eid parties just weeks after thousands of Brits flouted lockdown rules to celebrate VE Day.
According to an article on the BBC the Muslim Council of Britain has encouraged people to celebrate virtually due to social-distancing measures.
Just weeks earlier a reporter had been filmed on a busy street as hundreds of Brits gathered on the Bank Holiday Friday.
Pictures of people doing the conga also emerged, with police saying they received thousands of call outs over the weekend to reports of parties or gatherings that allegedly broke lockdown rules.
At the beginning of Ramadan, Health Secretary Matt Hancock thanked the British Muslim community for suspending congregational worship and abiding by the lockdown.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
