Comrade Tajul Islam’s 37th death anniversary tomorrow

The 37th death anniversary of Comrade Tajul

Islam, former Bangladesh Chhatra Union leader and a shifting worker at the

Adamjee Jute Mills, will be observed in the country in a befitting manner

tomorrow.

He was killed on March 1, 1984 when police opened fire on a procession

brought out by Sramik Karmachari Oikya Parishad (Skop) to realise the five-

point demand of the then 11 workers’ organisation.

The Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) every year observes the day as

Shaheed Tajul Dibos.

Marking the day, the CPB will pay homage to Tajul by placing wreath at the

altar of the temporary Shaheed Minar set up in front of the party’s central

office Mukti Bhaban in the city’s Purana Paltan area, said a press release

here today.

Different political parties, social and professional organizations and

dignitaries will also pay homage by placing wreaths at the altar of the

temporary Shaheed Minar between 10am to 11am.

Marking the day, CPB President Comrade Mujahidul Islam Selim and General

Secretary Comrade Md Shah Alam jointly issued a statement today, paying rich

tributes to Tajul Islam.
