National flag was kept at half-mast at all government, semi-government and autonomous institutions and educational institutions and Bangladesh missions abroad in observance of the mourning day.
Special doa was offered at all mosques today seeking eternal peace of the departed soul of the UAE President. Besides, special prayers were offered at other religious institutions seeking eternal peace of the departed soul.
The Cabinet Division issued a notification in this regard on Friday.
