Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Wednesday visited the National Martyrs’ Memorial and Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in Dhaka, as part of his ongoing three-day state visit to Bangladesh.

First Lady Fazna Ahmed accompanied him while he attended a wreath-laying ceremony at the National Martyrs’ Memorial to commemorate the heroism and patriotism of freedom fighters.

He also signed the visitor’s book and planted a sapling at the site.

Honouring the fighters who sacrificed their lives during the Liberation War in 1971, the memorial serves as a symbol of Bangladesh’s independence.

President Ibrahim then went to visit the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum and toured the museum grounds, according to the president’s office of Maldives.

Bangabandhu Memorial Museum was the home of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, later converted into the museum. The establishment is a monument, celebrating his lifetime of accomplishments and struggles.

Bangabandhu laid the groundwork for Bangladesh to attain independence and is remembered fondly as an icon of democracy and self-determination.

Later in the evening, he attended a program marking the birth centenary of Bangabandhu as the guest of honour.
