Eid-ul-Azha, the second largest religious festival of Muslims, will be celebrated in the country on August 1.
The decision came from a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee after reviewing information about the sighting of Jilhaj moon.
The meeting was held at the office of Islamic Foundation at Baitul Mukarram at 7:15pm with Religious Affairs Secretary Nurul Islam in the chair.
The moon of the holy month of Jilhaj was not sighted in the sky of Bangladesh today.
