The government offices, banks and financial institutions resumed on Monday after a five-day vacation of the holy Eid-ul-Fitr, the biggest religious festival of the Muslims.
Eid-ul-Fitr was celebrated across the country with due religious fervour and festivity on April 22.
This year, government employees got a five-day holiday at a stretch as the government extended the Eid-ul-Fitr holiday by one more day with April 20 as the public holiday after the holy Shab-e-Qadr holiday on April 19.
A large number of people left the capital, Dhaka, to celebrate the festival at their village homes with near and dear ones. Dhaka streets took on a deserted look as people went to villages to celebrate the festival.
People started returning to Dhaka to join their offices and work on Sunday (23 April) .
