Residents of 40 villages in Chandpur district are celebrating Eid-ul-Azha on Sunday amid much enthusiasm and religious fervour.

The villagers of Hajiganj, Faridganj, Matlab North, Kachua and Sharasti upazilas are celebrate Eid on Sunday following Saudi Arabia and its neighbours.

The main congregation of Eid-ul-Fitr was held at 9am at Peer Mawlana Ishaque Saheber Darbar Sharif Jame Mosque in Shadra village of Hajiganj upazila, said Maulana Zakariya Chowdhury of the Darbar Sharif, UNB reports.

Late Maulana Ishaque introduced the practice of Eid celebration in Chandpur in line with the celebration in Saudi Arabia in 1928.

He also said that the people of these villages also observe Eid-ul-Fitr on the same date with the people of Saudi Arabia.
