PM pays homage to Bangabandhu

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina paid rich tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, marking the 46th anniversary of his martyrdom.

As part of the state program, the Prime Minister paid homage to the architect of the country’s independence by placing wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi Road No 32 in the capital on Sunday. The day is being observed as the National Mourning Day.

After placing wreath, the Premier stood in solemn silence for some time showing profound respect to the great leader. A smartly turned out contingent of Bangladesh Armed Forces gave a state salute at that time, while the bugle played a tune of grief and somber to the last post.A munajat was also offered seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of the August 15 carnage.

Bangabandhu, his spouse Bangamata Begum Fazilatun Nesa Mujib, his three sons– Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal, and Sheikh Russell– and most of the family members of Bangabandhu and his three close relatives were assassinated in cold blood on the fateful night of August 15, 1975 by a group of disgruntled army men.
