Bangladesh's Cabinet Division Secretary has announced that the previously-released list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the calendar year 2016 had been amended by moving the date of the upcoming Eid-e-Miladunnabi (Prophet's Birthday) annual non-working public holiday of Bangladesh, to Tuesday, December 13, 2016.

Today's aforementioned announcement that the annual Eid-e-Miladunnabi (birthday of the Prophet Mohammad) non-working public holiday in Bangladesh would be observed on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, instead of December 12, follows last week's announcement (2015-12-13) by the Chairman of Bangladesh's National Moon Sighting Committee has announced that the moon of the month of Rabiul Awal Hijri 1438 had not been sighted in Bangladesh's sky yesterday and therefore that the annual Eid-e-Miladunnabi (birthday of the Prophet Mohammad), would be observed on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.

The announcements are in contrast with the Notice No: 05.00.0000.173.08.005.12-246 of the Ministry of Public Administration, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh (2015-11-02 and 2016-01-04) which announced the official list of non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the calendar year 2016, as concerns the dates of the 2016 public holidays in Bangladesh.
