Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of Muslims, has been celebrating in the country on Monday as the Shawwal moon is sighted in Bangladesh sky on Sunday.
This year, Eid-ul-Fitr has 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.
