Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi on Wednesday celebrated the 101st Birth Anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the National Children’s Day 2021 with a resolve to work for realising his dream of building “Sonar Bangla”.
The day’s programme began with hoisting of national flag by Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Muhammad Imran at Chancery premises.
High Commissioner Imran, along with members of the mission, placed a wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu at the chancery building.
It was followed by reading out of messages from President Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen and State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam.
Presiding over the meeting, Imran said Bangabandhu’s illustrious life was cut short by his assassination in 1975, but his legacy and ideals will inspire the Bengali nation forever.
He said the main goal of Bangabandhu’s politics was the independence of the country, so he was successful. His daughter, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, is also working with the aim of building “Sonar Bangla”, Imran said.
“Our children should learn more about our father of the nation, the greatest Bengali of all time, so they can provide future leadership in transforming our country into Sonar Bangla dreamt by him [Bangabandhu],” he said.
