The BNP leader was admitted to Evercare Hospital in Dhaka with low levels of haemoglobin

BNP Standing Committee member Moudud Ahmed was admitted to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore for advanced treatment on Tuesday.

The BNP leader and his wife Hasna Moudud left Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport for Singapore on a of Singapore Airlines flight around 11:55pm on Monday, his personal secretary Mominur Rahman Sujon told UNB.

Sujon said Moudud was admitted to the Mount Elizabeth Hospital around 6:30am on Tuesday and he has been receiving treatment under cardiologist Charles Toh.

Moudud will initially undergo some medical tests for his anaemia, heart, and some other problems. 

“Doctors at the Singapore hospital will also examine whether the permanent pacemaker implanted in his heart is working properly,” the personal secretary.

Moudud has urged everyone to pray for his speedy recovery, Sujon added.

On December 30 last year, Moudud, in his 80s, was admitted to Evercare Hospital in Dhaka as he had fallen ill due to low level of haemoglobin. He also suffered a mild stroke while undergoing treatment at the hospital.

On January 7, a permanent pacemaker was implanted in the heart of the ailing BNP leader.

A pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device which senses when one's heart is beating irregularly or too slowly and sends a signal to ensure the heart beats at the correct pace.

Moudud Ahmed is one of the founding members of the BNP.  He joined Jatiya Party in 1985 and served as prime minister and vice president in military ruler HM Ershad’s government.

After the fall of Ershad, Moudud returned to BNP in 1996 and he was made law minister in Khaleda Zia's government in 2001.

His wife Hasna Moudud is the daughter of famous poet Jasimuddin.
