Bangladesh will observe one-day national mourning on Thursday in respect to the memory of Kuwait’s emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al Jaber Al-Sabah, who breathed his last on Tuesday at the age of 91.

The Cabinet Division issued a notification in this regard Wednesday.

"One-day state mourning will be observed in the country on Thursday at the death of Bangladesh’s true friend Kuwait’s emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al Jaber Al-Sabah,” said the notification signed by Cabinet Division Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam.

Marking the day, national flag will be hoisted half-mast at all government, semi-government and autonomous offices, educational institutions and all government and non-government buildings and at  all missions abroad.

Special doa will be held at all mosques across the country while prayers will also be offered at places of worships for other religions, seeking eternal peace for the departed soul of Kuwait emir.
