Sheikh Hasina’s release day from prison today


BSS, Dhaka :
The 13th anniversary of the release of Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina from prison is being observed across the country today.
On this day in 2008, Sheikh Hasina was released from the special sub-jail set up on the premises of the Jatiya Sangsad (Parliament) Building after remaining captive there for nearly 11 months.
The Awami League President was arrested from her Sudha Sadan residence at Dhanmondi in the capital on July 16, 2007, during the military-backed caretaker government, which assumed power in the political changeover of 1/11 in 2007.
As Sheikh Hasina fell sick during her captivity, demands were raised then from different quarters including the Awami League and its associate bodies to send her abroad for better medical treatment after releasing her from jail.
Conceding to the people’s spontaneous and repeated demands and pressure from different quarters, the caretaker government was compelled to release Sheikh Hasina from jail.
In the national election of December 29 in 2008, the Awami League-led grand alliance registered a landslide victory with a two-thirds majority in the Jatiya Sangsad (Parliament) and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina became the Prime Minister for the second term.
Awami League (AL) and its associate bodies have taken various programmes to observe the day on a limited scale maintaining proper health rules due to the global pandemic.
To mark the day, Awami Swechchhasebak League has organized discussion and milad-mahfil at Kalabagan Sports Club premises in the capital at 11.30 am.
Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud will be present as the chief guest there.
With Swechchhasebak League President Nirmal Ranjan Guha in the chair, the discussion will be conducted by its general secretary Afzalur Rahman Babu.
