Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have removed Pakistan’s name from all the border pillars which were installed after the partition of the Indian subcontinent.

 After long 48 years of the country’s independence, all Bangladeshi border pillars have been renamed BANGLADESH/BD instead of PAKISTAN/PAK, said a BGB media release on Thursday.

After the separation of India-Pakistan in 1947, more than 8,000 border pillars were installed containing Ind/Pak-India-Pakistan.

The pillars were erected in the border areas of Satkhira, Jessore, Chuadanga, Kushtia, Rajshahi, Chapainawabganj, Naogaon, Mymensingh, Jamalpur, Sunamganj, Sylhet, Brahmanbaria, Comilla and Chittagong.
