Khaleda to perform Umrah, meet Tarique


BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia will perform the holy Umrah this year in Saudi Arabia where she is expected to join by her elder son Tarique Rahman.
Reliable source closed to Tarique Rahman in London yesterday confirmed that he would fly to Saudi Arabia on July 8 for performing Umrah hajj and meet his mother there. Tarique Rahman is now London in self exile. Khaleda Zia, on the other hand, is expected to take her flight to Makkah any day after July 6 attending an iftar party hosted by Bikalpa Dhara president Prod Dr Badruddoza Chowdhury, in Dhaka, party sources said.
“The chairman will go to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah but the date of her flight has not yet been confirmed,” said Shyrul Kabir Khan, a member of BNP chairperson’s media wing.
He further said Khaleda would leave Dhaka for Saudi Arabia any day after July 6 and she is likely to be accompanied only by her closed family members.
A senior Bangladeshi journalist based in London informed The Independent that Tarique Rahman at an iftar party on Thursday told reporters that he would fly for Saudi Arabia to perform the Umrah on July 8.
“He (Tarique) also informed that his mother (Khaleda) will also perform Umrah and they will meet each other in Saudi Arabia,” he said. – Staff Reporter
