President Md Abdul Hamid has offered the prayers of Eid-ul-Azha, the second biggest religious festival of the Muslims, at Bangabhaban Durbar Hall in Dhaka. 

Against the backdrop of ongoing global crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic, the traditional Eid prayers, with the spontaneous participation of people from all walks of life, in the capital's National Eidgah Maidan was cancelled earlier.

The head of the state offered the prayers with his family members and some important officials at the Durbar Hall of the presidential palace on Saturday morning.

The Eid jamaat (congregation) was held at 8:30am. Pesh Imam of Bangabhaban Jame Mosque Mufti Maulana Saiful Kabir conducted the Eid prayers, President's Press Secretary Joynal Abedin said. 

A special munajat was offered seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of Bangladesh and welfare of the people as well as the Muslims. 

Special doa was also offered seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of those who died of fatal Covid-19 and also wishing for the early recovery of the coronavirus infected patients throughout the country as well as across the world.

Doa was too offered seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and other members, faced martyrdom on the fateful night of August 15 in 1975 and the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of the county and its people in different democratic movements, particularly during the Liberation War in 1971.

After the prayers, President Hamid spent his time with his family members at the presidential palace. But no ceremonial greetings with serving delicious food items, in presence of country's distinguished personalities and foreign diplomats or guests were seen there.
