President to offer Eid prayers at Bangabhaban

President Abdul Hamid on Tuesday will offer the Eid prayers at Durbar Hall of the Bangabhaban.

“The Eid jamaat (congregation) at the Bangabhaban will be held in the morning (9:30 am),” President’s press secretary Md Joynal Abedin told UNB.

President Hamid will say the prayers of Eid-ul-Fitr, the greatest religious festival of the Muslims, maintaining health rules and social distancing.

The President attends the traditional Eid prayers in capital’s National Eidgah Maidan but like the last two years, the programme has been scrapped due the rise of the pandemic COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in some countries across the world.

After the prayers, the President will convey his Eid greetings to the nation through media at the Credential Hall of the Bangabhaban.

Later he is scheduled to spend his time with his family members at Bangabhaban.

Bangabhaban said no ceremonial greetings with serving delicious food items, in presence of country’s distinguished personalities and foreign diplomats or guests will take place.

His family members and some officials will also take part in the Eid jamaat.
