Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday greeted the nation of the occasion of Milad-un-Nabi, which marks the birthday of Prophet Muhammad.
The Prime Minister took to Twitter and said, "Greetings on Id-E-Milad. May the teachings of Prophet Mohammad further the spirit of harmony in our society?"
Milad-un-Nabi is commemorated in Rabi'al-awwal, the third month in the religious calendar.
Based on the lunar calendar, the date of Milad-un-Nabi varies around the world.
In some parts of India, Karnataka and Telangana, the festival did not start until Saturday because the moon was not sighted until later.
