The International Mother Language Day

The 21st February is a memorable day in the history of Bangladesh. This day is also called Shaheed Dibash. The day bears the memory of the great ' Language Movement' Which was at the root of our liberation war. 

On this day in 1952, some brave sons of our soil had Sacrificed their lives for the sake of our mother tongue, Bangla. Then Pakistani rulers declared that ' Urdu' would be the state language of East Pakistan. The bengalis opposed it from the very beginning. On the 21th February 1952, The students of Dhaka University  brought out a procession and the police fired on a procession. Rafiq, Jabbar, Salam, Barkat and many others were martyred. Since then the 21st is observed as a 'Shaheed Day'. 

On this day, we go to the Shaheed Minar bear footed and offers flowers in memory of our Martyrss. We wear black badges and sing, "Amar Bhayer Raktay Rangano Akusey February.' Bangladesh Betar and different channels telecast different programmes. The government, Different organizations and institutions arrange different programmes to celebrate the day. 

In 1999, UNESCO declared the day as 'International mother Language Day'. Since then it is celebrated globally.

 Really it is great achievement for our nation. It is also great pride for us.
