The 48th anniversary of the martyrdom of Birshreshtha Shaheed Captain Mohiuddin Jahangir, one of the recipients of the seven highest gallantry awards of the 1971 Liberation War, is being observed in Chapainawabganj.
Bangladesh Muktijoddha Sangsad Chapainawabganj district unit, with the aid of local administration, began their day-long program by hoisting the national flag and placing wreaths at his grave and the memorial built in his honour at Rehaichar around 9:30am on Saturday.

After that, different socio-cultural and political organizations also paid their respect by placing wreaths at the memorial of Captain Mohiuddin Jahangir. Later, a munajat (prayer) was held there seeking eternal peace for his departed soul.
A milad mahfil, prayers, and ziarat of his grave have also been organized for Birshreshtha Shaheed Captain Mohiuddin Jahangir on the courtyard of the historic Sona Masjid.
On this day in 1971, just two days before the nation’s final victory against the Pakistani occupation army, Captain Mohiuddin Jahangir was killed in a battle with the enemy at Rehaichar in Chapainawabganj town.
Every year, people of Chapainawabganj remember the day with solemnity, joy, and sorrow because Jahangir freed the then Nawabganj subdivision from the clutches of the Pakistani occupation forces and their collaborators after a fierce fight, sacrificing his life on this day in 1971.
