President, PM pay homage to Bangabandhu
President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have led the nation in paying homage to Bangladesh’s founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who was killed on this day 42 years ago. They placed wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi on Tuesday morning, reports BSS. Bangabandhu and most of his family members were killed by a group of rogue army men on this day in 1975 at his residence. Bangabandhu's daughters Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her sister Sheikh Rehana survived as they were abroad at that time. The day is being observed as the National Mourning Day. As part of the state programme, the president and the prime minister laid wreaths separately at Bangabandhu’s portrait. President Hamid and Prime Minister Hasina stood in silence for some time to show respect to the man who led the country’s struggle for independence. A smartly turned out contingent of Armed Forces gave state salute, while bugle played tune of grief and somber to the last post. Prayers were offered for the eternal peace of the souls lost in the August 15 carnage. Sheikh Rehana, youngest daughter of Bangabandhu, Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury, Chief Justice SK Sinha, cabinet members, prime minister's advisors, senior leaders of Awami League and 14-Party and senior government officials were present there. Speaker Chaudhury and Chief Justice Sinha followed the president and the prime minister in paying tributes. Later, Sheikh Hasina, also the president of ruling Awami League, accompanied by party's General Secretary Obaidul Qader and senior leaders, placed wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu on behalf of the Awami League. After paying tributes, the prime minister along with her sister visited Bangabandhu’s Dhanmondi residence where the father of the nation was brutally killed. Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana spent some times in the house which now has been turned into Bangabandhu Memorial Museum. Later, the prime minister went to Banani Graveyard where her mother Fazilatun Nesa Mujib, brothers Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal and Sheikh Russell and other martyrs of August 15 were laid to rest. Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana placed floral wreaths and prayed for the eternal peace of the departed souls.
