The 75th birthday of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is being celebrated across the country on Tuesday.

Sheikh Hasina, also the  President of Bangladesh Awami League and the eldest among the five children of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib, was born at Tungipara in Gopalganj on September 28 in 1947.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is now in the USA as she went there to join the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). Following the footprint of Bangabandhu, she also delivered speech in Bangla at the UNGA like the previous years.

Like the previous years, Awami League (AL) and its affiliated and like-minded bodies will celebrate the day through various programmes highlighting the life and achievements of Sheikh Hasina, who is driving the nation towards prosperity following the footstep of her father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

On the occasion, discussions, Milad and doa mahfils and special prayers will be organized in the capital and across the country, with maintaining health guidelines in view of the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of the central programmes, AL will hold a discussion at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) at 10:00 am today. It will organize doa and Milad mahfil at the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque after Zohr prayers seeking good health and long life of Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Special prayers will be held at International Buddhist Monastery (Merul Badda) at 6:30 pm, Christian Association Bangladesh (CAB), Mirpur Baptist Church at one minute past zero hours, Jakmala Rani Church at Tejgaon at 6:00 am and Dhakeshwari Temple at 5:00 pm on the day.
