Jakarta: Bengalis in Indonesia, which has the world's largest Muslim population, are celebrating Durga Puja with great fervour and enthusiasm this year. People from all walks of life have joined in the celebrations.

Inaugurating the celebrations, Indian Ambassador Gurjit Singh appreciated the Jakarta Bengali Association for keeping their traditions and cultural heritage alive in Indonesia.

He also complimented the Bengalis over the choice of their pandal -- rural Bengal in all its glory, said an Indian embassy press release.

Various other Indian organisations in Indonesia are organising functions to herald in the festive season of Navratri.
