Bangladesh HC Declares Cancellation of National Mourning Day As Illegal


Bangladesh High Court has declared illegal the cancellation of National Mourning Day and pubic holiday on August 15.

A Division Bench delivered the judgment following a writ petition that had challenged the impugned decision of the BNP led government on July 28, 2002.

On August 8, 1996 the Awami League government headed by then premier Sheikh Hasina declared August 15 as National Mourning Day and public holiday to pay respect to the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who was assassinated on August 15, 1975 along with most members of his family by a group of army men.

Amir Khasru has the details.
