Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain Thursday called upon all to work together to materialise the dream of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for building the country as "Sonar Bangla".
He was speaking at a blood donation programme organised by the Supreme Court at the SC Auditorium, marking the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Bangabandhu and the National Mourning Day.

Department of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) provided assistance to the Bangladesh Supreme Court in arranging the blood-donation programme.
"The soul of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will find peace if the nation can build 'Sonar Bangla' as he dreamt of. It's our responsibility to work for materialising the dream of the Father of the Nation," the Chief Justice said.
Appellate Division Justice Muhammad Imman Ali, Justice Md Nuruzzaman, Justice Abu Bakar Siddiquee, and the justices of the High Court Division were present.
Justice Mahmud Hossain described the August-15 carnage as the 'most painful and scandalous' chapter in the history of independent Bangladesh, as Bangabandhu and most of his family members were brutally assassinated on this day in 1975.
"On this day, the Bengali nation commemorates this greatest son of soil it with deep grief and reverence," he added.
Earlier in the morning, the Chief Justice paid homage to Bangabandhu by placing a wreath at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi Road No. 32 in the city.
Supreme Court Registrar General Md Zakir Hossain also spoke on the occasion, among others.
