The interim cabinet has restored August 15 as National Mourning Day, the day independence leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was assassinated in 1975, a government spokesman said on Sunday.

The day will be a government holiday, said the chief adviser's press secretary Syed Fahim Munaim after an afternoon cabinet meeting at the CA's Office.

Munaim said the cabinet had decided to abide by the High Court decision.

On July 27, the court declared illegal the cancellation of the government holiday and National Mourning Day on Aug 15.

The BNP-led alliance government in 2002 cancelled the mourning day and public holiday on Aug 15, declared by the Awami League government in 1996.

Its a very good news for the nation that the founding leader at last reinstated in his eternal glory. The government took a right step and deserve the credit to uplift the truth appropriately. The wish and respect of the people of Bangla nation has been reflected by this decision.

Now it is important to remember by everyone that Mujib is Bangabondhu of common people of the country. He is not a symbol of a particular party or group. He is owned by the strong love of the people for whom he fought his entire life and died along with is full family.
