Speaker of Jatiya Sangsad Dr Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury and Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain today paid deep homage to the Father of the Nation by placing wreaths at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi in the capital this morning.
Earlier, President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have also paid deep homage to the Father of the Nation by placing wreaths at the same place.
After placing the wreaths, President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina stood in solemn silence for some time showing respect to the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on the 43rd anniversary of his martyrdom.
Sheikh Hasina, also the President of Awami League, flanked by party's General Secretary Obaidul Quader and senior leaders, placed wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu on behalf of the party, around 6:30am at Dhanmondi Road No. 32 in Dhaka.
The National Mourning Day is being observed across the country and abroad recalling the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
On the fateful night of August 15, 1975 is the ugliest chapter of the nation’s history because the self-confessed killers did not assassinate Bangabandhu alone, but also killed 16 other members of his family, friends and relatives.
