March is a month of unforgettable memories- memories of Bangladeshi people

For the people of Bangladesh, March is a month of unforgettable  memories- memories of pride as well as of sorrow and grief. It is a month of proud memories because in this month in 1971 Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared the independence of Bangladesh.

In the early hours of the 26th March, shortly before his arrest by the Pakistani army, Bangabandhu declared the independence of Bangladesh. Now 26th March is our Independence  Day which we celebrate annually with pride and joy. 

But March is also a month of sad memories for us. On the 25th March 1971, the Pakistani army swooped upon the Bangalees. They killed many unarmed and innocent men,  women and children in Dhaka. 

The Bangalees did not let it go unchallenged. They started resisting Pakistani army and the war of liberation began. 

On the 16th December of the same year, a new nation independent Bangladesh war born. This is why December 16 is our Victory Day when the Pakistani army surrendered unconditionally. We, the Bangalees celebrate our Victory Day by remembering the roles of our fearless freedom fighters. On the other hand, we sadly remember all the sufferings that our people endured during the liberation war. We pay our deep respect to the martyrs who gave their lives for the independence of Bangladesh. Along with celebrating our Victory Day every year, we should make a pledge to work unitedly to build the Sonar Bangla that Bangabandhu dreamed of.
