Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) paid rich tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on Sunday on the occasion of the Homecoming Day of the great leader.
The leaders and activists of the ruling Awami League-affiliated student wing - led by its' acting president Al Nahian Khan Joy and acting general secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee - paid the homage by placing wreaths at the portrait of the Father of the Nation in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi this morning.
Bangabandhu, the undisputed leader of the nation and supreme commander of the country’s Liberation War, returned to the sacred soil of independent Bangladesh via London and New Delhi on January 10 in 1972, after 290 days of confinement in Pakistan jail.
Since then, the nation is observing the day as the Homecoming Day of the Father of the Nation.
The Homecoming Day of Bangabandhu this year came with an extra significance as it coincided with Father of the Nation’s birth centenary celebrations, just three months ahead of the golden jubilee of the country’s independence.
