Government offices reopened today after Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the biggest religious festivals of Muslims. This year, Eid-ul-Fitr was celebrated in Bangladesh on May 3.
This year, government employees got a six-day holiday – April 29 and 30 were weekly holidays, May 1 was public holiday for May Day and May 2, 3 and 4 were public holidays for Eid-ul-Fitr.
Eid-ul-Fitr didn't see full celebration over the last two years due to the coronavirus pandemic. Due to health regulations, Eid jamaat were not arranged at Eidgahs.
But this time, the nation celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr with much festivity, fanfare and fervor.
Thousands of people left Dhaka to celebrate the festival at their village homes.
