Abdus Salam's 42nd death anniversary today

Today is the 42nd death anniversary of eminent journalist Abdus Salam, former editor of the now-defunct English daily The Bangladesh Observer.

On this occasion, his family will feed the destitute at their Dhanmondi residence in the morning, and pay a visit to his grave at Banani graveyard in the capital, says a press release.

Sangbadik Abdus Salam Smriti Sangsad -- an organisation commemorating Salam – has chalked out various programmes to mark the day.

It will organise a memorial meeting at Jatiya Press Club at 3pm on February 25.

Salam, also founding director general of Press Institute of Bangladesh (PIB), was awarded Ekushey Padak for his contribution to journalism.
