With the advent of Ramadan, shops such as this one selling prayer caps before the Baitul Mukarram national mosque in the capital are seeing a boon in business as wearing the headgear is customary among believers of the subcontinent. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan
The Chittagong district administration dismantled 40 houses at risk of landslides on a hill in the port city's Ambagan area yesterday. This was the second eviction drive, after Sunday's, to protect hill dwellers during this monsoon, said officials, adding that the dwellers had been asked to evacuate earlier, to no avail. However, day labourer Jamsed Miyan said, "I am poor and live from hand to mouth. How will I rent a better house elsewhere?" Drives will continue throughout Ramadan. Photo: Star
