Dhaka: Bangladesh on Monday celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr with religious fervour amid tight security, marking the end of Ramadan.

Iftar is the time each day during Ramadan that Muslims can break their fast and replenish themselves before the next day of fasting, so Eid ul-Fitr is like the Iftar of the holy month of Ramadan and signals that Muslims stop the routine of fasting each day.

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has congratulated Muslims in Delta State, Nigeria and all over the world on the occasion of the 2017 Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.

"There will be a number of celebrations to mark Eid taking place over the next few weeks in Croydon and across the capital".

Two people, including a policeman and an attacker, were killed and 10 others, including several police personnel, were injured in several bomb explosions followed by exchange of gunfires between law enforcers and miscreants during last Eid day on July 7, 2016 at the entrance of Sholakia Eid prayer ground.

Islamic State sympathizers have carried out a series of mostly low-level attacks in Indonesia over the past few years. "It's not something I've given a lot of thought to but it wouldn't bother me".

Narendra Modi, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, greeted the nation and wished the spirit of peace and brotherhood may exist. Smaller public gatherings took place throughout Russian Federation, where Muslims are the second-largest denomination.

Muslims attended prayers at a Marawi mosque in an emotional gathering.

The White House tradition started with earnest in 1996, when First Lady Hillary Clinton hosted 150 people after learning more about the ritual from her daughter Chelsea, who had reportedly studied Islamic history in school, as reported by Muslim Voices.

Mosques in Mae Sot district in Tak province were crowded on Sunday morning, with local Muslims in the border district joined by many who crossed over the Moei River from Myawaddy town in Myanmar to celebrate Hariraya in Thailand.

In Russia, Eid al-Fitr is marked as an official holiday in nine predominantly Muslim republics in the southern part of the country.

Mehbooba Mufti prayed the month long fastings and the night long supplications of the faithful are accepted and rewarded by the Almighty. "Inshallah", said 28-year-old Sumayah.
