1969 Student activist and student leader Amanullah Mohammad Asaduzzaman was killed in police firing and his death intensified the nature of student mass movement and turned into a mass-upsurge against the Ayub regime and its repressive measures. In many places of the country, people replaced the nameplates of Ayub Khan with the name of Shaheed Asad. In time, Ayub Gate was renamed Asad Gate, Ayub Avenue as Asad Avenue and Ayub Park as Asad Park.
