New Delhi: Bangladesh High Commission observes historic 7th March
Bangladesh High Commission pays homage to its Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman today to mark his historic 7th March speech in 1971 that galvanized the people of Bangladesh to prepare for the war of liberation.
Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Muhammad Imran led the members of the mission to place a floral wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu at the chancery building. He also presided over a discussion meeting underlining the significance of the 18-minute speech that was recognized as the Memory of the World Register by UNESCO in 2017. He said the historic speech, delivered extempore before a sea of crowd at then-Race Course (now Suhwardy Uddyan) in Dhaka will remain ever inspiring for the people of Bangladesh as they work hard, under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, to build Sonar Bangla as dreamt by Bangabandhu.
