However, as usual no religious procession was taken out in Jammu and outskirts on the birth day of Prophet Mohammed which is known as Eid Milad-un-Nabi. Small processions in groups were taken in different mohallas which later converted into small get togethers at local mosques where the religious scholars threw light on the teachings of Islam.
