Janmashtami, the birth celebration of Sri Krishna and one of the major festivals of the Hindu community, will be observed across Bangladesh on Friday with religious fervor and enthusiasm.

According to Hindu Puran (mythology), Sri Krishna (Lord) was born on the eighth tithi of Shukla Pakkha (fortnight of the new moon) in the Bangla month of Bhadra and he takes birth in ages in the world to safeguard the good and pious people from the hands of malevolent people by establishing truth, justice and beauty in the society.
