Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi today launched the celebration of “Mujib Barsha”, the birth centenary of its Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with a resolve to work for realizing his dream of building “Sonar Bangla”.
High Commissioner Muhammad Imran, along with the members of the mission, placed a wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu in the chancery building. Earlier he hoisted the national flag.
It was followed by reading out of messages from Bangladesh President Md. Abdul Hamid, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Foreign Minister A.K Abdul Momen and State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam.
In presiding over the meeting High Commissioner Imran said Bangabandhu’s illustrious life was cut short by his assassination in 1975, but his legacy and ideals will inspire the Bengali nation forever.
The mission has chalked a series of events throughout Mujib Barsha, including conferences, cultural festival and art exhibition. It will publish a Coffee Table Book in memory of Bangabandhu to mark the National and Independence Day on March 26.
