'Placing wreaths at the grave of Dr Wazed in limited scale, offering Fateha and distribution of Iftar among orphans seeking divine blessings for his departed soul was allowed'

The 11th death anniversary of renowned nuclear scientist and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s husband Dr. M A Wazed Miah was observed on Saturday.

The nuclear scientist with international reputation was born on February 16, 1942 in a respectable Muslim family at village Laldighee Fatehpur in Pirganj upazila of the district. He died on May 9, 2009.

He was laid to eternal rest with full state honour at their family graveyard in his paternal village Laldighee Fatehpur.

Due to the present situation caused by the coronavirus outbreak, different organisations have postponed observance of the day through daylong programs like in the past ten years to maintain physical distance.

“Placing wreaths at the grave of Dr Wazed in limited scale, offering Fateha and distribution of Iftar among orphans seeking divine blessings for his departed soul was allowed,” said President of Dr MA Wazed Foundation and Vice-president of district Awami League AKM Chhayadat Hossain Bakul.

The Pirganj upazila Awami League, Dr. MA Wazed Foundation, family of Dr Wazed and other organisations observed the death anniversary in a limited scale.

Dr Wazed Smriti Sangsad (DWSS) arranged a miladmahfil maintaining physical distance at Keramotia Jam-e-Mosque in Rangpur city seeking divine blessings and eternal peace of the departed soul in the afternoon.

“In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, we have canceled the day-long programmes as we chalked out every year in the past to observe the death anniversary of Dr. Wazed,” said General Secretary of DWSS and senior journalist Saiful Islam Jahangir.

According to his family sources, Dr Wazed was the youngest among four sons and three daughters of Abdul Quader Miah.

He studied up to class four at the primary school at his native village and then up to class six at a high school in Pirganj town.

He passed matriculation examinations from Rangpur Zila School in 1956 in first division with distinctions and then enrolled in Rajshahi Government College from where he passed the Higher Secondary Certificate Examinations.
