No Eid congregation at Sholakia this year also

There will be no Eid congregation at Sholakia in Kishoreganj this year because of coronavirus pandemic.

The authorities concerned have suspended the Eid-ul-Fitr Jamaat (congregation) at the historic Sholakia Eidgah Maidan in Kishoreganj this year due to the pandemic.

Kishoreganj Deputy Commissioner (DC) and Sholakia Eidgah Committee President Md Shamim Alam said they took the decision following the directives of the Religious Affairs Ministry issued on Sunday, asking for not to hold Eid Jamaat at open spaces in a bid to contain the spread of coronavirus.

The Religious Affairs Ministry has requested people to offer Eid-ul-Fitr prayer at nearest mosques in locality instead of going to Eidgah or open spaces.

The Eid Jamaat on the historic Sholakia Eidgah Maidan has been suspended for the first time in the history last year due to the outbreak of coronavirus since 1828.
