Devotees were praying at Ijtema ground. Muslims began gathering in the second day amid tight security on river bank of Turag near Dhaka for one of the world's largest Islamic congregations, which begins Friday. Akheri Monazzat (final payer) will be taking place tomorrow. Huge security forces including Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), police and army were on guard at the venue spread over 190 acres on the river bank in Tongi. Thousands have already arrived for the three-day congregation. Organisers expect about more than three millions to join the mass prayers on Sunday. Last year more than 2.5 million people joined the final prayers. The Ijtema has been held annually at the same venue since 1966. Thousands streamed into the venue by jam-packed bus and ferry in a fog weather of the country. The gathering shuns politics and focuses on reviving the tenets of Islam and promoting peace and harmony. Dhaka, Bangladesh. February 3 2007.
