The main congregation of Eid-ul-Azha was held at 8 am at the National Eidgah Maidan adjacent to the High Court in the capital. Hafeez Maulana Mufti Ruhul Amin, Khatib of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque conducted the jamaat.

Earlier, on Sunday morning, worshipers entered the Eidgah Maidan to join the main congregation of Eid-ul-Azha amid tight security. The worshipers came to the Eidgah Maidan through three checkpoints in front of the Matsya Bhaban and the High Court.

At the entrance of Eid Jamaat, the law enforcement forces including RAB and police kept a close watch. The worshipers who came to the Eid Jamaat were allowed to enter the Eidgah after searching three places.

However, no one was upset about this. On the contrary, worshipers from far and wide have also expressed satisfaction over the tight security arrangements.

Ablution system, health service center, and RAB control room are kept in the premises of Eidgah. Besides, the main gate of the Eidgah is also decorated in colorful colors.

Meanwhile, considering the overall situation in the country, the Ministry of Religious Affairs has given several instructions regarding the celebration of Eid-ul-Azha and the performance of prayers in Eidgahs and mosques.

Everyone has been asked to perform ablution from their homes and come to Eidgah and mosque. Authorities have been instructed to keep soap or hand sanitizer in Eidgah and mosque wards to prevent Kovid-19 infection.
