    Thousands of Muslims kneel in the middle of a busy road junction to pray, causing a town's traffic to come to a standstill today. The Bishwa Ijtema takes place every year and sees millions come to pray along the River Turag in Tongi, Bangladesh.

    In the photos every inch of tarmac is filled with devoted worshippers bringing buses and lorries to a grinding halt. It is the second largest Muslim congregation in the world after the Holy Hajj in Mecca, the holiest city for Muslims.
