Arafat Rahman Coco’s chehlum will be held on Wednesday
4 March 2015, Nirapad News: Khaleda Zia’s youngest son Arafat Rahman Coco’s chehlum will be held at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office in Dhaka on Wednesday.
Khaleda’s Press Secretary Maruf Kamal Khan said on Tuesday, “Recitation of Quran will be held from morning and Doa Mahfil (special prayers) will be arranged after the Asr prayers.”
He said the BNP chief had urged party leaders and activists and people in general to pray for Coco, who died of heart disease in Malaysia.
The Chehlum, a religious ritual for a deceased, coincided with hearing in two graft cases against the former prime minister at a special court in Dhaka.
