Dhaka University to observe ‘Black Day’ Wednesday

Staff Reporter |

Dhaka University (DU) will observe August 23 as the “Black Day” in memory of the “inhuman, sad and condemnable” attack on the university’s teachers, students and officials on August 20-23, 2007.

To mark the day, teachers, students, officials and employees of the university will wear black badges, said a DU press release here today.

A discussion will also be held at the Teacher-Student Centre (TSC) around 11:30 am with DU Vice-Chancellor Professor AAMS Arefin Siddique in the chair, added the release.

On August 20, 2007 army personnel assaulted three students and insulted a teacher of DU at gymnasium playground during a football match, triggering clashes between police and students at DU and other educational institutions across the country.

A number of teachers and students of different universities, including Rajshahi and Dhaka Universities, were arrested following the clashes on charges of violating emergency power rules.
