Three-member Committee formed to cancel Zia’s Bir Uttam gallantry award

Jatiya Muktijoddha Council (Jamuka) has formed a three-member committee to take a final decision on the cancellation of the gallantry title of ‘Bir Uttam’ conferred on the BNP founder Ziaur Rahman. 

A member of Jamuka and lawmaker Mosharraf Hossain will head the committee. Two other members of the committee are Shajahan Khan and Rashidul Alam, Members of the Parliament. Both of them are also the members of Jamuka.

Earlier on February 9, Jamuka in a meeting took a decision to remove the gallantry title of ‘Bir Uttam’ conferred on Ziaur Rahman.

Zia is being stripped of the title for defying the constitution, assisting the self-proclaimed killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in fleeing the country and posting them on important state positions, according to Jamuka.
