26th March

Bangladesh is a newborn independent country. We had to undergo a world of pains and sufferings under the barbaric domination of the different autorotation of Great Britain as colonial state for long 190 years. Then we had to suffer under the domination of the barbarize rulers of West Pakistan for about 25 years. A mountain high disparity was created by them in the different spheres of national life. They made us crippled economically, politically and culturally. Their atrocities surpassed all the humanitarian limits. But our undaunted leaders and freedom-loving people did not let the matter go unchallenged. They rose up with great determination and started vigorous movement against them. A lot of blood was shed in different movements. At last, the war of liberation was waged on the midnight of March 25 1971. The war continued for long nine months. More than 30 lacks of people sacrificed their valuable lives for the cause of freedom. This blood-shed of our heroic people did not go in vain. A proverb also goes, ‘there is a silver lining even in the darkest of clouds’. Justice triumphed in the long run. The Pakistani occupation forces surrendered unconditionally to the allied forces on December 16, 1971. This victory confirmed the birth of Bangladesh on the world map. However, March 26 victory confirmed the birth of Bangladesh on the world map. However, March 26 is our independence day because on this day in 1971, the Independence Day was declared. We celebrate this day every year with great honor and solemnity
