Various German newspapers report about the celebrations of Eid around the globe. As reported by the Ostthüringer Zeitung and the Ahlener Zeitung, Muslim communities in Thüringen and North Rhine Westphalia celebrate the holiday and have established ways of making sacrifices that are in line with German rules and regulations. In light of current celebrations, the central council of Muslims in Germany emphasised the importance for Muslims to contribute to the fight against prejudice; furthermore, the German non-Muslim majority had to fully accept Islam and its practices as part of German society.
