Ziabul's death anniversary today
The 18th death anniversary of Ziabul Hassan will be observed in Rajshahi today, says a press release.
Ziabul, an activist of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) of Rajshahi city unit and a class ten student of Rajshahi Muslim High School, was shot and hacked to death on this day in 1990 by armed cadres of the then autocratic ruler to foil an imminent mass upsurge.
Since then, BCL, Ziabul Memorial Parishad and other Progressive Student Organisations of Rajshahi have been observing the day as 'anti-repression day'.
On the occasion, Ziabul Memorial Parishad and BCL will hoist black flag at their offices and wear black badges and place wreaths at the grave of Ziabul. Qurankhwani, milad mahfil, special prayers session and discussion will be also held.
