Syed Nazrul Islam (1925-1975), a leading politician and acting President of the Provisional Government of Bangladesh at Mujibnagar formed during Liberation War in 1971, was assassinated on November 3, 1975 under controversial circumstances in Dhaka central jail. This day is commemorated every year in Bangladesh as Jail Killing Day. To convey respect to the meaning of such a tragic historical incident in the odyssey of this country’s emerging progression, this convention center is designed and built as a memorial by Metropolitan Architects.
