Bangladesh's National Moon Sighting Committee has announced that it had sighted the New Moon crescent last night and, therefore, that the upcoming Ashura, and related annual non-working public holiday in Bangladesh, would be observed across the country on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, which corresponds to the previously-announced date for Ashura, and related public holiday in Bangladesh.

The aforementioned announcement is in line with the date announced in the list of non-working public holidays in Bangladesh in 2016, which was released last fall (2015-11-02) by the Ministry of Public Administration, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh.
