Death anniversary of five martyrs on Monday

The 48th martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed Engineer Fazlur Rahman, Shaheed Hosne Akhter (an NGO trainer), Shaheed Mostafizur Rahman Moznu (college student), Shaheed Hasinur Rahman Hiron (school student) and Shaheed Azizur Rahman Babu (school student) will be observed on Monday, says a press release.

They were killed at their railway government residence in Saidpur under Nilphamari jointly by the Pakistani occupation forces and their collaborators ‘Biharis’ (Urdu speaking) on the day in 1971 for their involvement in the War of Liberation.

Hosne Akhter was buried alive after charging bayonet by the killers. Her son Saidur Rahman and two daughters Dilruba Khatun and Camellia Rahman managed to escape during the atrocities.

On the occasion, Qurankhwani will be held and foods will be distributed among the destitute.
