Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expressed deep shock at the death of Rama Chowdhury. 

Birangana (Liberation War Heroine) Rama Chowdhury died at the age of 79 while undergoing treatment at Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH)—around 4:10am on Monday.

In a condolence message, the Prime Minister recalled Rama Chowdhury’s sacrifice and struggle for the great Liberation War. The PM prayed for the peace of the departed soul and expressed sympathy to the bereaved family, reports UNB.

Born at Popadia village in Boalkhali upazila in 1941, Rama Chowdhury was tortured at the hands of Pakistani military forces at her residence on May 13, 1971 during the Liberation War.

The freedom fighter, who lost her two sons during the war, wielded her pen and wrote 19 books, including novels, poetry, and articles—alongside teaching in high schools.

Rama Chowdhury had been suffering from illness since she sustained a fracture in her waist after she fell down at her residence in Boalkhali upazila, of Chittagong, on December 24, 2017.
