The Islamic University is celebrating the 57th birth anniversary of Sheikh Russel, the youngest son of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, on its campus in Kushtia today.
IU Sheikh Russel Hall has been organising the event by placing a floral wreath at Sheikh Russel’s mural in front of the hall in the morning.
A cake-cutting ceremony and the webinar will be held to mark the day.
Sheikh Russel Hall provost Professor Rabiul Hossain said all preparations had been taken to celebrate the birth anniversary in a peaceful atmosphere maintaining social distance.
On August 15, 1975, Sheikh Russel was killed along with most of his family members, including Bangabandhu, when he was just a student of class four.
