The day is a public holiday

The Hindu community is celebrating Janmashtami, marking the birth of Lord Krishna, with due religious fervour on Tuesday.

According to Hindu religion, Lord Vishnu incarnated in the universe as Lord Krishna in the prison of Raja Kangsa on this day, the eighth of “Shukla Pakkha” (bright fortnight) in the month of Bhadra in Dwapara Yuga in order to protect “Dharma” from the hands of devils.

Sri Krishna was born to Devaki and Vasudeva in Mathura to which Krishna’s parents belonged.

The day is a public holiday.

President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in separate messages greeted the members of the Hindu community on the eve of the occasion.

National dailies will publish special articles while Bangladesh Betar and Bangladesh Television and other private TV channels and radio stations will air special programs highlighting different aspects of the eventful life of Lord Krishna.
