President Md. Abdul Hamid offered his Eid-ul-Fitr prayers at Bangabhaban Durbar Hall on Monday morning instead of the National Eidgah this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The congregation was held at 9:30 a.m. Pesh Imam of Bangabhaban Jame Mosque Mufti Maulana Saiful Kabir conducted the Eid prayers,” he added.
A special munajat was offered seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of Bangladesh and welfare of the people as well as the Muslim Ummah.
A special Doa was offered seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of those who died of Covid-19 and also wishing the early recovery of coronavirus patients in the country.
The Bangabhaban spokesman said there would be no exchange of Eid greetings.
