Vice-Chancellor of Jahangirnagar University (JU) Prof. Dr. Farzana Islam expressed deep shock on the death of freedom fighter Bir Pratik Taramon Bibi.
Giving his sincere respect to Taramon Bibi, in a condolence speech, the Vice-Chancellor said, “Bir Pratik Taramon Bibi is proud of Bengali women. His contribution to the liberation war and freedom struggle will be remembered forever.”
VC Dr. Farzana Islam conveyed sympathy to the Bir Pratik Taramon Bibi’s family and relatives and prayed for peace of his soul on behalf of Jahangirnagar University family.
It is notable that, in 1973 Bangladesh awarded Taramon Bibi with the ‘Bir Pratik’ award for her gallantry during the war.
But, her whereabouts were unknown until she was traced in 1995. On December 19 of the same year, the honour was conferred on her.
