Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said Sheikh Kamal, the eldest son of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, will live forever in the hearts of the youth as a blazing flame of inspiration.
“Sheikh Kamal will remain in the hearts of youths as he was a creative unique talent,” he said. Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, made the statement while talking to reporters after paying homage to Sheikh Kamal at Banani graveyard in the capital, marking the 72nd birth anniversary of Sheikh Kamal.
Quader said the most stigmatised chapter in the history of bloody treachery in Bangladesh is the August 15 of 1975.
The AL general secretary said the Bangalee nation got stigmatised due to the killing of Bangabandhu but Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina removed this stigma by completing the trial of the August 15 carnage.
“…we will build Bangabandhu's Sonar Bangla, being an adventurer of the path of light that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is embarking on – and it should be our pledge on this day,” he said.
AL presidium members Abdur Razzaque, Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman, joint general secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Hasan Mahmud and AFM Bahauddin Nasim, organising secretaries Ahmed Hossain, Mirza Azam and SM Kamal Hossain, science and technology affairs secretary Abdus Sabur and office secretary Biplab Baraua, among others, were present on the occasion.
Later, leaders and workers of the AL’s affiliated bodies and various social and cultural organistions, including AL Dhaka city units, Bangladesh Chhatra League, Jubo League, Krishak League, Swechchhasebak League, Mahila Awami League, Jubo Mahila League and Awami Matsyajibi League paid respect to Sheikh Kamal at Banani graveyard.
