The 57th birthday of Shaheed Sheikh Russel, youngest son of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, will be observed on Sunday.

Sheikh Russel, also the youngest brother of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, was born on October 18 in 1964 at the historic Bangabandhu Bhaban in Dhanmondi.

He was assassinated on August 15 in 1975.

Russel was brutally killed along with most of his family members, including his father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, when he was a student of class four at University Laboratory School.

Different socio-cultural organizations, including the associate bodies of the ruling party Awami League, have taken various programs to observe the birthday of Sheikh Russel.

To mark the day, Awami League will place floral wreaths on the graves of all martyrs, including Sheikh Russel, of the August 15 carnage in 1975, at the city’s Banani graveyard at 8am on Sunday.

Besides, milad and doa mahfil will also be held by the party members.

Awami League General Secretary and Minister for Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Quader, in a statement, on Saturday urged party leaders, workers, supporters, and people of all walks of life to observe the birthday of Sheikh Russel following the health rules.
