Eid-ul-Fitr to be celebrated tomorrow

Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of Muslims, will be celebrated in the country tomorrow as the Shawwal moon is sighted in Bangladesh sky on Sunday.

Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Monday as Shawwal moon is sighted in the sky of Bangladesh, said Md Nurul Islam, secretary to the Ministry of Religious Affairs.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee on Sunday evening after reviewing the information of Shawwal moon sighting.

This year, Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in a different scenario without any outdoor programme and Eid Zamaats at Eid grounds across the country due to coronavirus pandemic.

The government urged Muslim devotees to avoid Eidgah or other open places for Eid congregations and offer prayers at mosques maintaining recommended health advice.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs issued an emergency notification on May 14 in this regard, saying the decision was taken due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic.
