BNP leaders and activists have paid homage to their party founder and late president Ziaur Rahman, marking what they said the ‘National Revolution and Solidarity Day’.

Amid political turmoil, soldiers and civilians jointly freed then chief of army staff Ziaur Rahman from captivity in Dhaka cantonment on 7 November 1975, paving the way for him to come to power, reports UNB.

While BNP celebrates November 7 as the National Revolution and Solidarity Day, the ruling Awami League and its front organizations consider it as the day of ‘killing of freedom fighters’.

BNP and its associate bodies chalked out various programmes to observe the day.

As part of the programs, senior BNP leaders and activists, led by party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, placed a wreath at Zia’s grave at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar around 10:10am yesterday.

They also offered fateha there and a munajat seeking salvation of Zia’s departed soul.

BNP standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan, vice-chairmen AZM Zahid Hossain and Ahmed Azam Khan were, among others, present.

Leaders and activists of different units and associate bodies of the party also laid wreaths at its founder’s grave on the occasion.

Earlier in the morning, the BNP flag was hoisted at the party’s Nayapaltan central and chairperson’s Gulshan offices and other party offices across the country.
