Staff Correspondent: The 13th death anniversary of Ivy Rahman, former president of Bangladesh Mahila Awami League and wife of late President Zillur Rahman, is being observed today (Thursday) in a befitting manner.
To mark the day, different political and socio-cultural organizations, including Bangladesh Awami League (AL), its associate bodies and other likeminded organizations have chalked out elaborate programmes.
The programmes included placing wreaths and offering fateha at her (Ivy) grave at Banani graveyard in the capital, arranging milad mahfil and special prayers, and holding discussions in Dhaka and elsewhere across the country.
Central leaders of Awami League and its associate bodies paid rich tributes to Ivy Rahman by placing wreaths at the Banani graveyard on the day at 8 am. They will also offer fateha and doa seeking eternal peace of her departed soul.
AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader urged all members of AL central executive committee, advisory council and associate bodies to attend the programmes.
Ivy Rahman received grievous injuries during a grisly grenade attack on an AL rally at Bangabandhu Avenue in the city on August 21 in 2004 and succumbed to her injuries on August 24.
