The Shawwal crescent moon was not sighted in Bangladesh on Sunday, May 1, hence Eid ul Fitr, the largest religious festival of Muslims, will be celebrated in the country on Tuesday, May 3. Tomorrow, May 2, will be the last day of Ramadan.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee with State Minister for Religious Affairs Faridul Haque Khan in the chair this evening after reviewing the information of the Shawwal moon sighting.

Eid ul Fitr is marked on the first day of Shawwal - the month that comes after Ramadan in the Hijri calendar.

The largest religious festival of Muslims will be celebrated amid religious fervour and enthusiasm after a month of fasting.

This year, Eid will be celebrated in a different scenario as the previous two years Eid was celebrated without any outdoor programme due to coronavirus pandemic. But this time, the cornavirus pandemic is comparatively low and Eid jamaat will be held at Eidgahs across the country.
