Bangladesh Government Reinstates August 15 as National Mourning Day


Bangladesh government has reinstated August 15 as National Mourning Day and a public holiday to commemorate the assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The High Court recently ruled that the decision was illegal.

The last BNP-led alliance government had cancelled the state observance of August 15 in 2002. August 15 was first declared National Mourning Day by the then Awami League government in 1996.

On this day in 1975 Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was killed along with most of his family by a group of army officers.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
