Eid-ul-Fitr being celebrated in 40 Chandpur villages 

As many as 40 villages of Chandpur district are celebrating the Eid-ul-Fitr today (April 10) as they prefer to observe holy days in line with Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries.

The villagers of Hajiganj, Faridganj, Matlab North, Kachua and Sharasti upazilas are celebrating the Eid.

Late Maulana Ishaque introduced the practice of Eid celebration in Chandpur in line with the celebration in Saudi Arabia in 1931.

Devotees of these villages began fasting on the same date as the people of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia announced that the Kingdom will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Wednesday as the Shawwal moon was not sighted on Monday evening.

However, Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of Muslims, will be celebrated in the country tomorrow (April 11) as the Shawwal moon was not sighted in Bangladesh yesterday (April 9).

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee yesterday evening after reviewing the information of the Shawwal moon sighting.
