December 16 is the day of great victory. A day of highest achievement and pride in the history of the Bengali nation.
The spirit of independence that erupted through the “language movement” of 1952, in the course of the movement, eventually took the form of the independence movement.
On March 7, 1971, at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan, Bangabandhu’s ‘This time the struggle is for our liberation, this time the struggle is for freedom’ … the famous time-honored speech and the liberation war against the Pakistani ruling class finally inspired the Bengali nation. At that time the all-round non-cooperation movement under the leadership of Bangabandhu united in the ultimate goal of gaining independence through a series of events and the Bengali nation jumped into armed struggle.
Happiness can come in many ways in life. But sacrificing one’s life for the liberation of the motherland is nothing compared to the joy of victory! In this green country of 55,000 square miles, the red sun of victory rose on this day 49 years ago. Muktipagal broke the chain of Bengali subjugation and snatched the sun of freedom. The rays of the sun were the color of victory achieved with blood. The color of that blood mixed with green Bengal made a red and green flag.
In the light of that sun of that day was the dream of a new day, the dream that 3 million people of this country gave their lives to achieve. A new country, independent-sovereign Bangladesh, was born on this day after nine months of hard struggle, mother-sister sacrifice and supportive resources.
This year December 16, the 49th anniversary of the bloodbath victory, the 50th Victory Day. The day to raise the head of independent sovereign Bangladesh. After a long armed struggle of 9 months, in exchange for many lives and a sea of blood, the brave Bengalis snatched the red sun of victory.
