51st death anniversary of Shaheed Nazrul Islam today

The 51st death anniversary of Shaheed engineer Nazrul Islam, a freedom fighter, will be observed today, says a press release.

During the Liberation War, he 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.

After the independence, the Hatkhola road was officially named after him and Shaheed Nazrul Girls School was established in his own district Shariatpur.

On the occasion, Professor Hazera Nazrul, wife of the martyr, has arranged a Qurankhwani and milad mahfil before Maghrib prayers at 204/A Gulshan Tejgaon Link Road in the capital.

His friends and well-wishers are requested to attend the programme.
