Wazed Miah’s 13th death anniv today
Today is the 13th death anniversary of internationally reputed nuclear scientist Dr MA Wazed Miah, husband of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
In a message, President M Abdul Hamid yesterday paid tributes to his memory.
Hamid recalled that Wazed made notable contributions to atomic research in Bangladesh.
He served the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission in different capacities successfully, the president said.
Hamid said Jatiya Samannita Unnayan Foundation was established in 1997 at the advice and under the patronage of Wazed.
Wazed will remain a source of inspiration to the future generation, he said, adding that Wazed was arrested during the movement against Aiyub Khan's military rule in 1962.
The noted scientist tied the knot with Hasina on November 17, 1967, and stood by Bangabandhu's family during the Liberation War.
