Eid Jamaat is in that Tetultala ground


Senior Reporter: After defending the Tentultala field of Kalabagan in Dhaka, the locals offered EID prayers there.

Eid-ul-Fitr congregation was held at Tetultala ground at 8 am on Tuesday. Muslims of different ages in the area took part in it.

Awnings are erected on the ground around the Eid Jamaat, and infrastructure is built with bamboo.

Asked about the Eid Jamaat being held here, Kalabagan Police Station OC Paritosh Saha said, “I don’t know if there was a Jamaat here before, and I haven’t heard.”

Local children and teenagers used to play sports and various social events in the area were taking place in the tetultala floor field of government land of 1 bigha area.

When the initiative was taken to set up Kalabagan Thana in that field recently, a movement was formed under the leadership of Syeda Ratna, an activist from Udichi.

Police in riot gear stormed a rally on April 24, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. The Prime Minister then instructed not to build a police station building there.

As a result, the field is protected for the children and teenagers in the area to play, although the field will remain under the supervision of the police.

Asked if the bamboo infrastructure for Eid Jamaat was under police supervision, the OC said, “No.”
