The historic Homecoming Day of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was observed at the Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC in a befitting manner.
Bangabandhu, the undisputed leader of the nation, returned to independent Bangladesh via London and New Delhi on January 10 in 1972 -- after 290 days of confinement in a Pakistan jail.
The embassy arranged a program to observe the historic day and paid homage to the great architect of Bangladesh's independence.
The day’s program started with placing of a floral wreath at the bust of Bangabandhu by the embassy officials led by Charge d’Affaires of the Embassy, Ferdousi Shahriar.
The messages of President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina were read out by the Defence Attaché Brigadier General Md Shahedul Islam and Minister (Political-II) Md Rashedujjaman.
