Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of Muslims, will be celebrated in the country tomorrow if the moon for the month of Shawal is sighted this evening.

The National Moon Sighting Committee will sit today at the conference room of the Islamic Foundation in the capital to take a decision in this regard.

Members of law enforcement agencies will keep a close watch on all Eid congregations across the country.

Meanwhile, all preparations for holding Eid congregations have already been completed in the capital and elsewhere in the country.

A large number of people have already left Dhaka for their homes outside the capital to celebrate Eid with their near and dear ones.

Bangladesh Television, Bangladesh Betar and all television channels will air special programmes and many newspapers will publish special supplements on the occasion. Special food will be served in hospitals, jails and orphanages across the country.

The two Dhaka city corporations will keep open the children’s parks, allowing free entry to all visitors on the Eid day.
