The largest Eid-Al-Adha jamaat ( Eid Congregation) of South Asia is being held at Gour-e-Shaheed Baro Moydan of Dinajpur. The organizers claim around 4,00,000 devotees participated in today’s Eid congregation which figure is apparently two lakh higher than that of Sholakia Eid congregation.

The prayers began at 8:00 am with devotees coming from different parts of the region.

Mawlana Shamshul Haque Kashemi administered the Eid prayer while Judge Enayetur Rahim, Whip Iqbalur Rahim, deputy commissioner Mir Khairul Alam and Police Supper Hamidul Alam were attended the prayer.

Apart from members of other law enforcement agencies, over 500 policemen were deployed in and around the Eidgah to ensure security.

Organisers said there are arrangements for over 5 lakh devotees to say their Eid prayers together at the ground. The area of the ground is around 22 acres where Sholakia Eidgah has seven acres of land.
