Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – The holy Ramadan will begin in Bangladesh on Sunday, as the moon was not sighted anywhere in the country on Friday.
The National Moon-sighting Committee took the decision at a meeting held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in the capital Dhaka on Friday with Religious Affairs Minister Principal Matior Rahman in the chair.
Religious Affairs Secretary M Abdul Jalil was, among others, present at the meeting.
The Committee decided the date of Ramadan on Friday evening after obtaining reports from all corners of the country, according to a statement, issued by the Islamic Foundation.
The devout Muslims will have sehri on the wee hours of Sunday to begin the holy month, at the end of which Eid-ul-Fitr will be observed.
As a result, the holy Lailatul Qadr will be observed on June 22 night.
