Bangladesh celebrates Eid-ul-Azha, the second biggest festival of the Muslims after Eid-ul-Fitr, amid the coronavirus pandemic compounded by floods.

Thousands of Muslims joined Eid congregations in mosques Saturday morning. A mix of hopes and fears among people is defining the day.

The first congregation of this year's Eid was held at the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque at 8 am. Imam Hafez Mufti Maulana Mizanur Rahman presided over the congregation, reports

The congregation was capped by prayers for the victims of the coronavirus and peace and welfare of the nation.

Mizanur Rahman said: “May Allah consider those who have died of the virus as martyrs. Allah, please heal the sick. Protect us all from this disease.”
