The main congregation of Eid al-Adha will be held at 8 am at the National Eidgah on the High Court premises in the capital. However, if the weather is unfavorable or if there is no congregation at the National Eidgah for any other reason, the main congregation of Eid will be held at 8:30 am at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque.

The decision was taken at an inter-ministerial meeting on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha celebrations at the Secretariat on Sunday.

State Minister for Religious Affairs Md. Faridul Haque Khan presided over the function. Senior Information Officer of the Ministry of Religious Affairs Mohammad Anwar Hossain said this after the meeting.

Depending on the sighting of the moon, the Holy Eid al-Adha, the second largest religious festival of Muslims in Bangladesh, may be celebrated on July 10.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the main congregation of the last Eid-ul-Fitr was held at the National Eidgah two years later. Following this, the main congregation of Eid al-Adha is also being held at the National Eidgah.
