Dhaka University will confer 'Doctor of Laws' degree on Father of the National Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
"The decision has been taken at a meeting to confer the award on Bangabandhu next year, marking 'Mujib Barsho' (Mujib Year)," said DU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman on Saturday.
The VC came up with the disclosure at a press conference held in observance of the 52nd convocation of DU.
The government has chalked out elaborate programmes to celebrate 'Mujib Barsho' from March 17, 2020 to March 26, 2021 marking the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation.
Bangabandhu will be given the degree as he was a student of the university's Law Department, said Prof Akhtaruzzaman.
The DU authorities expelled Bangabandhu in 1949 without serving any show cause notice for his involvement in the movement of class-IV employees. The DU syndicate forum withdrew the expulsion order in 2010.
