The 56th death anniversary of Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy, one of the greatest leaders of undivided India, was observed across the country yesterday in a befitting manner.

The unparallel leader of all Indian politics, who had dedicated his entire life to ensure the welfare of the people by upholding democracy, died at a Beirut hotel, Lebanon on December 5, 1963.

To mark the day, different political and socio-cultural organizations, including the ruling Awami League, took various programs, including placing wreaths at the grave of the great leader in the morning, discussions, Qurankhwani, milad and doa mahfil in Dhaka and elsewhere across the country.

Awami League led by its General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader paid glowing tribute to the late leader by placing wreaths at his grave adjacent to the High Court in the morning while Fateha and doa were offered there.

The central committee of Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote arranged a discussion at the National Press Club here in the morning.

AL presidium member and central 14-party alliance spokesperson Mohammed Nasim attended the discussion as the chief guest.

Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy was born in a respected Muslim family at Medinipur in West Bengal, India on September 8, 1892.

Suhrawardy was a Bengali politician and statesman in the first half of the 20th century. He served as the premier of Bengal in British India and was the fifth prime minister of Pakistan.
