Dr. Muhammad Shahidullah Hall Alumni Association of DU organized the discussion on the hall premises marking Shahidullah's 132nd birth and 48th death anniversary.
Presided over by the Hall Alumni Association Convener Md Yunus, the function was also addressed by Housing and Public Works Ministry Secretary Md Shahid Ullah Khandaker, Hall Provost Professor Md. Ainul Islam, DU Bangla Department Chairman Dr Bismadeb Chowdhury, DU Teachers' Association President Dr. ASM Maksud Kamal and Shahidullah's granddaughter Shanta Mariyam, among others.
Professor Siddique recalled Dr. Muhammad Shahidullah's contributions to the Language Movement and the War of Liberation, the release said.
