BGB also takes initiative to remove the name ‘Pakistan’ from border pillars

Thakurgaon Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has identified and repaired graves of three martyred BGB men who lost their lives during the War of Liberation in 1971.

The martyred freedom fighters are – Subedar Ataul Haque, Bir Bikram Nayeb Subedar Nazimuddin and Bir Protik Subedar Ahmed Hossain.

Their graves were repaired and the tombstones had their names and citations embedded on them.   

BGB also took an initiative to remove the name “Pakistan” from the border pillars on Saturday.

BGB Sector Commander Col Shamsul Arefin said this during a Doa Mahfil and discussion held after paying tribute at the graves of the martyred freedom fighters.

BGB unit 50 took the initiative of removing the names from the pillars after 47 years of independence.

Unit Commander Lt Col Tuhin Mohammad Masud presided over the discussion.

Additional District Magistrate Shilabroto Karmaker, former commander of freedom fighters’ unit Badruddoza Badar spoke at the program.

Col Shamsul said: “Although a long time has passed due to certain reasons some pillars of the border area still has the name ‘Pakistan,’ which were not removed, but recently, on directives from the BGB director general, we are almost at the end in removing the name ‘Pakistan’ once and for all.”

“As part of the initiative six sub pillars were renamed with Bangladesh on December 12 by the BGB50 unit,” added Col Shamsul.

Family members of martyred freedom fighters and members of the BGB were also present at the program.
