Dhaka — On National Mourning Day, 46th Martyrdom Anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman ICT department has paid its tribute. August 15 is a scandalous chapter in the history of the Bengali nation.
On this day in 1975, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the undisputed leader and father of the greatest Bengali nation of all time was martyred at his residence in Dhanmondi by the ruthless bullets of the assassins with the direct and indirect help of the conspirators against the war of liberation and independence.
