The exhibition titled “Chitre Chirabhaswar”, organised by BAU, will continue till December end. Vice-chancellor of BAU Professor Md. Rafiqul Islam, also a veteran Freedom Fighter, inaugurated the exhibition as chief guest. On display are 125 photographs, mostly taken by internationally reputed photographer late Naibuddin Ahmed. The photographs zoom in on the BAU campus, its adjoining areas and different parts of the district during the nine-month struggle for liberation from the clutches of the Occupation Pakistan army. Among others, BAU student affairs adviser Professor Sultan Uddin Bhuiyan, proctor of the university Professor Shahidur Rahman Khan, deans and teachers of different faculties were present at the inaugural ceremony. A discussion was held in the course of the opening session. The speakers said that photographs are vivid and authentic documentations of history. Through the photographs taken in 1971, we can recall the sacrifice of the people for the motherland irrespective of their community, the speakers added. Meanwhile, the BAU authority has undertaken a week- long programme marking Martyred Intellectuals Day and Independence Day celebrations. The programmes included placing of floral wreaths at the Liberation War monuments, discussions, cultural shows and a children’s painting competition.
