Unesco clarifies ‘omission’ of Bangla from Feb 21 video
In the mail, George C Papagiannis, chief of Unesco Media Services, said the video was removed as soon as the Paris-based UN organisation figured out the absence of Bangla language in the video. The video commemorating International Mother Language Day – based on the 1952 Bangla Language Movement – was themed on “Towards sustainable futures through multilingual education.”

George also said the video will be republished after the appropriate amendments. On February 20, Unesco released a video on the eve of International Mother Language Day, depicting a variety of people of different nationalities saying what their mother tongues are. The roughly two-minute clip titled “What’s your mother language?” was uploaded from Unesco’s official YouTube handle with a description: “To celebrate the International #MotherLanguageDay, we’re asking people from around the world to tell us what their mother tongue is. So, what’s your mother language?”

Unesco says International Mother Language Day’s objective is to “promote linguistic diversity and multilingual education, and to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue.”
