Bangladesh's National Moon Sighting Committee and Religious Affairs Committee has announced that the moon of the month of Rajab had been sighted in Bangladesh's sky yesterday and therefore that the Lailatul Meraj would be observed on Thursday, June 6, 2013.

There is no news, yet, as to a possible revision of the Buddha Purnuma (Buddha Day) public holiday which we feel is 2 days early as contained in the DFIM Circular Letter of the Ministry of Public Administration, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh (2012-11-30) which announced the official list of non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the calendar year 2013.
