The Shaheed (martyred) Noor Hossain Day will be observed today across the country.
The day is observed on November 10 every year commemorating the supreme sacrifice of
pro- democratic activist Noor Hossain, who laid down his life to overthrow the then autocratic regime of Hussein Muhammad Ershad.
On this day in 1987, Noor Hossain, a leader of Juba League, was killed in police firing near Zero point in the city while participating in a pro-democracy procession.
His death ultimately expedited the fall of Ershad regime and paved the way to restore democracy in the country. ?BSS
