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

Two special trains carried the devotees on Bhairav-Kishoreganj and Mymensingh-Kishoreganj routes.

Kishoreganj Superintendent of Police Mashruqur Rahman Khaled said they have taken special measures to ensure tight security keeping in mind the militant attack at Sholakia Eidgah in 2016 in which four people were killed.

Plain clothed personnel from different intelligence agencies were seen helping the law enforcment agencies with strict vigilance in and around the Sholakia.

Drones, Closed Circuit Camera Television (CCTVs) and watchtowers were set up at each of the entry points of Kishoreganj town and the Sholakia Eidgah to ensure fool-proof security.
