President M Abdul Hamid has offered his Eid-ul-Azha prayers, along with hundreds of people from all walks of life, at the National Eidgah in Dhaka.

Cabinet members, judges of the Supreme Court, lawmakers, senior political leaders, and high civil and military officials also offered their prayers at the main Eid jamaat (congregation) held at 8am on Wednesday.

Senior Pesh Imam of the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque Mufti Maulana Muhammad Ehsanul Huq conducted the Eid prayers, reports BSS.

A special munajat was offered seeking divine blessings for peace, the progress of Bangladesh, people's welfare, and the Muslim Ummah (community).

Prayers were also offered for the eternal peace of the departed souls of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family members—who were assassinated on August 15, 1975.

Additionally, prayers were also offered for the people who have embraced martyrdom, at different times, for the sake of Bangladesh and establishing democracy.

After the prayers, President Hamid exchanged Eid greetings with devotees at the Eidgah.

The Eid jamaat was held under the auspices of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) under tight security in, and around, the Eidgah—adjacent to the High Court.

Earler, upon his arrival at the Eidgah, the president was received by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, DSCC Mayor Sayeed Khokon and other concerned.
