The Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB) has paid respect to language heroes on the occasion of Martyrs’ Day and International Mother Language Day.

DCAB President Nurul Islam Hasib and General Secretary Ashiqur Rahman Apu led the association in paying homage to the Language Movement martyrs by placing wreaths at the Central Shaheed Minar beside Dhaka Medical College and Hospital on Wednesday morning.

Former general secretary Mahfuz Mishu was also present, among others.

The day, February 21, marks the martyrdom of valiant sons of Bangladesh for establishing Bangla as the state language of then-East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) in 1952.

The day is also being observed around the world as Unesco recognized it as International Mother Language Day on November 17, 1999.

This year's theme for the day is “Multilingual education is a pillar of intergenerational learning.”

The DCAB is a 26-year-old organization of reporters who cover the foreign affairs of Bangladesh.
