President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina paid tribute to the heroes fallen during the Liberation War by laying wreaths at the Savar National Monument at the outskirts of the capital.

This year’s Victory Day coincides with the centenary of the birth of the Father of the Nation and half a century of the country’s independence.

Detachments from the Bangladesh Army, Navy and Air Forces, as well as Freedom Fighters, paramilitary forces, law enforcement and various government ministries take part in a parade.

Following sanitary guidelines, special prayers will be offered in mosques and other places of worship, asking for eternal peace for the souls of the ‘martyrs’ of the Liberation War and the peace, progress and prosperity of the country.

All playgrounds and museums in the country will remain open to all and films based on the War of Liberation will be screened free of charge.

National newspapers printed special supplements for the occasion, while Bangladesh Post Office will release commemorative stamps.

State and private television and radio broadcast programs highlighting the War of Liberation, and enhanced diets will be served on the day for inmates, hospitals, orphanages and homeless homes across the country.
