Bangladesh will observe National Mourning Day on the 34th death anniversary of Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on Saturday.
The day is a public holiday. The government chalked out nationwide programs to observe the day at the state level. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, one of the surviving daughters of Bangabandhu, will visit her father's grave at Tungipara.
Along with ruling Awami League (AL), different political parties, and student and socio-cultural organizations also planned programs to mourn the killings of the architect of the country's independence and most of his family members, by some army men on this day in 1975.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has more on the story.
