The 50th death anniversary of Shaheed Engineer Nazrul Islam will be observed today, says a press release.
During the liberation war, the freedom fighter conducted an operation to blow up five power stations in Dhaka. He was also an adviser on electrical and power matters to the then newly formed Bangladesh government in 1971.
On the occasion, a Qurankhwani and milad mahfil will be held before Maghrib prayers at 204/A Gulshan Tejgaon Link Road in Dhaka.
His wife Professor Hazera Nazrul has requested all his friends and well-wishers to attend the programme.
