After a five-day Eid-ul-Azha vacation, office-goers have started to return to Dhaka, as all government officers are resuming on Sunday.

From Saturday night, Dhaka started to come back to life as hundreds of people were seen at the bus stations, train stations, and launch terminals.

Nonetheless, the capital city still remains relatively vacant compared to its usual bustling state.

Post and Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar said a total of 7,445,523 SIM users had left Dhaka in three days, including Eid day.

At the same time, 206,736 SIM users entered Dhaka during the same period.

This year, the government officials-employees got a five-day holiday at a stretch. The government extended the Eid-ul-Azha holidays by a day as it declared June 27 a holiday through an executive order.

With the holiday of June 27, the government officials-employees enjoyed a five-day holiday for Eid-ul-Azha as pre-scheduled holidays were on June 28 to June 30 and July 1 is a Saturday, a weekly holiday.

The Muslim community celebrated the Eid-ul-Azha with festivity, fanfare and religious fervour. Dhaka streets took a deserted look as people went to villages to celebrate the festival.
