Ijtima being organized since year of independence
Bhopal Ijtima, which ranked third in the world's largest religious congregation, started in the year 1947 with the participation of only 13 people in Masjid Shakur Khan located in old city of Bhopal. The following year, after the Tajul Masjid was completed, the event was shifted here. Due to the increasing number of Jamats in the event held here for a long time, it was shifted to the Eitkhedi. It is being organized at this place for more than a decade and a half. Now the number of people participating in it has reached in lakhs.
