Meanwhile, there is no enjoyment of Eid among most of the expatriate Bangladeshis. Many have been passing their days through unbearable miseries. A pall of gloom has descended on their families in Bangladesh. So, they have urged the Bangladesh government to inquire about their families at home and provide necessary assistance.
