The Public Administration Ministry has announced the schedule of multiple namaz-e-janazas and other events to honour the late veteran politician Syed Ashraful Islam.

On Sunday, a namaz-e-janaza, open for all, will be held for Syed Ashraf at the South Plaza of Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban at 10:30am. He will also be given a guard of honour there.

At 12pm, a second janaza will be held at the Sholakia Eidgah in Kishoreganj. A third janaza will be held at Anjuman Eidgah grounds in Mymensingh.

He will then be laid to rest at the Banani Graveyard in Dhaka.

On Tuesday, a Kulkhwani will be held at his Bailey Road residence after the Asr prayers, to pray for his departed soul. Syed Ashraf’s cousin and Kishoreganj Awami League Joint General Secretary Syed Ashfaqul Islam Titu made the announcement.

“We urge all leaders and activists, and well-wishers to join the event and pray for his departed soul,” he said in a statement.

Ashraf has left behind one daughter and a host of relatives to mourn his death.
