Bangladesh mission observes International Mother Language Day in Tripura

Assistant High Commission of Bangladesh in Tripura has observed the International Mother Language Day with due solemnity and fervour.

The national flag was kept at half-mast at the mission, special prayers were offered, floral wreaths were placed at the “Shaheed Minar” replica, discussions and receptions were held on Wednesday.

Mission staff and officials led by Assistant High Commissioner Mohammad Shakhawat Hossain paid rich tribute to the martyrs of the language movement offering floral wreath at a replica of the “Shaheed Minar” at Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhavan in Agartala, the capital of the northeast Indian state of Tripura.

Shakhawat Hossain paid gratitude to Tripura for its role in the 1971 liberation war while addressing the gathering at Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhavan.

The assistant high commissioner expressed optimism over better friendship between India and Bangladesh as well.

State Finance Minister Bhanu Lal Saha paid floral tributes to the language martyrs as well.

February 21 is observed as Language Martyrs Day for Bangladesh. On this day in 1952, the then Pakistan police shot dead several protesters who were demanding Bangla as the state language of the erstwhile East Pakistan.

Several years later, in November 1999, the United Nations declared February 21 to be an International Mother Language Day.
