The government of Bangladesh has announced that the upcoming Lailatul Qadr or Shab-e-Qadr (night of destiny) in Bangladesh would be observed on the evening of Wednesday, May 20, 2020, to be followed on the next day by the corresponding annual non-working public holiday in Bangladesh.

The aforementioned announcement is, contrary to some years (2018-06-06, 2017-05-29), in line with the official list of 2020 non-working public holidays in Bangladesh, as contained in the official announcement of the list of 2020 public holidays in Bangladesh (2019-11-25), although the current string of Covid19 public holidays in Bangladesh (2020-05-13), makes the declaration of a public holiday for Shab-e-Qadr moot.
