In Dhaka, the biggest congregation was held at the National Eidgah where President Abdul Hamid offered his prayers along with people from all walks of life.

Congregations were also held at the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque and various places in the capital.

Law enforcement agencies, including Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) and police, have taken tight security measures.

Television channels and radio stations are airing special program on the occasions. Special diets will be served at hospitals, jails, government orphanages, centers for persons with disabilities, shelter homes and vagrant and destitute welfare centers.
