President Hamid greets nation for Eid

President Md Abdul Hamid has also greeted the nation as well as the Muslims across the world on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.

In a message issued on Tuesday, the president said the spirit of sacrifice of Eid-ul-Azha is a unique example of showing respect and love to the Almighty.

"Azha means Qurbani (sacrifice)," he said, adding that sacrifice instils the spirit of self-sacrifice into all and also teaches them the spirit of sharing happiness and sorrow with relatives and neighbours.

The president said this year Eid-ul-Azha was being celebrated at a time when the world community is distraught witnessing a catastrophe caused by the coronavirus pandemic, as many people are in hardship at different parts of the world, including Bangladesh.

"Due to coronavirus, the life and livelihood of the people of the country are facing a difficult challenge today," he said.

He urged the people of the country to stand by the people affected by the pandemic by realizing the meaning of sacrifice and being inspired by the spirit of restraint and sacrifice.

The president also called upon the citizens to sacrifice their animals in government designated places.

He hoped that everyone would try to prevent environment pollution by removing the waste of sacrificial animals after Qurbani.

He advised all to observe Eid-ul-Azha with utmost caution by adhering to proper hygiene rules and maintaining social distancing.
