Birshrestha Ruhul Amin’s Tomb

The Mazar (tomb) Complex of martyred Birshrestha Ruhul Amin is on the bank of the Rupsa River of Khulna. The tomb of the gallant son of Bangladesh is situated at Bagmara village under Rupsa upazila. Birshrestha Mohammad Ruhul Amin was born in 1934 in Sonaimuri upazila of Noakhali district. While he was in Pakistan army, the liberation war began and then he left the job, joined the liberation war, and provided the local young men with training in the art of warfare. He participated in the liberation war under K.M Shafiullah in sector-3. Later on he worked as an artificer in the warships “Palash” and “Padma”. While he was at work on 10 December, 1971, a bomb of the Indian Air Forces was mistakenly dropped on the ship in the Rupsa River; as a result, the engine room was gutted to ashes. Then Ruhul Amin jumped into the river and swam ashore, but he was caught and taken as a captive by the Razakars and was martyred. Every year on the Victory Day and the Independence Day, many people gather here to pay homage to him and to commemorate his contributions to the struggle for independence.
