Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has paid rich tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman marking the National Mourning Day and the 45th anniversary of his martyrdom.

As part of the state program, the prime minister paid homage to the architect of the independence by placing wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi Road No 32 in the capital on Saturday.

The day is being observed as the National Mourning Day.

After placing wreaths, the prime minister stood in solemn silence for some time showing respect to the great leader.

A smartly turned out contingent of Bangladesh Armed Forces gave state salute at that time, while the bugle played tune of grief and sombre to the last post.

A Munajat was also offered seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of the August 15 carnage.

Bangabandhu, his spouse Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib, his three sons– Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal, and Sheikh Russell– and most of the family members of three close relatives of Bangabandhu were assassinated in cold blood on August 15, 1975, by a group of disgruntled army men.

Two daughters of Bangabandhu Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her sister Sheikh Rehana could escape the carnage as they were staying abroad at that time.

After paying tributes to Bangabandhu, the premier along with her daughter Saima Wazed Hossain visited the historic residence of Bangabandhu at Dhanmondi Road No. 32 which witnessed the world’s most barbaric carnage on this day 45 years ago.

Sheikh Hasina stayed in the house, which has now been turned into Bangabandhu Memorial Museum, for some time.

From Dhanmondi, the prime minister later went to Banani Graveyard where her mother Bangamata Fazilatunnesa Mujib, brothers Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal, and Sheikh Russel and other martyrs of August 15 were laid to eternal rest.

The prime minister placed wreaths and spread flower petals on their graves.

She also offered Fateha and prayed for the eternal peace of the departed souls of the martyrs of August 15.
