Bangladesh Nationalist Party leaders and activists on Thursday paid homage to their party founder and late president Ziaur Rahman, marking what they said National Revolution and Solidarity Day.
Amid political turmoil, soldiers and civilians jointly freed then chief of army staff Ziaur Rahman from captivity in Dhaka cantonment on 7 November 1975, paving the way for him to come to power.
While BNP celebrates November 7 as the National Revolution and Solidarity Day, the ruling Awami League and its front organisations consider it as the day of killing of freedom fighters.
BNP and its associate bodies have chalked out different programmes to observe the day.
As part of the programmes, senior BNP leaders and activists, led by party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, placed a wreath at Zia’s grave at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the city around 10:10am.
