The Dhaka University (DU) authority has chalked out a series of programs to observe ‘Amar Ekushey’, the International Mother Language Day, on Thursday. 

DU's ‘Central Coordination Committee for Observing Amar Ekushey’ and various other sub-committees are working to observe the day peacefully.

Teachers, students, and various other organizations will place wreaths at the Central Shaheed Minar to pay homage to Language Movement martyrs in the early hours of Thursday. 

A ‘Provat Feri’ (Dawn March) led by DU Vice-Chancellor, Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman, will be brought out at 6:30am on the day, starting from the base of the Aparajeya Bangla Sculpture. 

DU senate and syndicate members, teachers, students, and staff, will take part in the ‘Provat Feri.’ 

After offering Fateha for the martyrs of the Language Movement at Azimpur Graveyard, the procession will place wreaths at the Central Shaheed Minar to pay tribute to the brave martyrs. 

DU will also arrange special prayer ceremonies for the language martyrs at each campus mosque after Zohr prayer.
