Information Minister and Awami League Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud said that the independence of Bangladesh cannot be imagined without Bangabandhu. Not accepting Bangabandhu is a denial of Bangladesh.
He said this while talking to reporters after paying homage at the portrait of the Father of the Nation in front of Bangabandhu Bhawan at Dhanmondi in the capital on the morning of the 102nd birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on Thursday (March 17).
Hasan Mahmud said it was under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the father of the greatest Bengali nation of all time, that the first Bengali nation-state Bangladesh was established in the history of the Bengali nation for 5,000 years. The independence of Bangladesh cannot be imagined without Bangabandhu.
The Information and Broadcasting Minister said, “On this day, it is our oath to establish the non-communal spirit on which Bangladesh achieved independence under the leadership of Bangabandhu. Today’s oath is to uproot all communalism, eliminate the conspirators against the independence and sovereignty of the country and reach the dream address of Bangabandhu and the participants of the freedom struggle under his leadership.
After paying homage, he left Dhaka to attend a two-day event organized by the Bangladesh Awami League at Tungipara in Gopalganj, the birthplace of Bangabandhu, on March 17-18.
