HABIGANJ: Habiganj is all set to get a Shaheed Minar ahead of Language Martyrs’ Day on February 21.

Shaheed Minar is a national monument established in Dhaka to commemorate those killed during the 1952 Bengali Language Movement.

Every year on February 21, people visit the Shaheed Minar in Dhaka to pay homage to the martyrs of the Language Movement, marking ‘Amar Ekushey’ and Language Martyrs’ Day.

Quamrul Hasan, deputy commissioner of Habiganj district, said construction work of the Shaheed Minar began Wednesday near the District Collectorate building under the supervision of the local administration.
