Paragraph on International Mother Language Day
Mother tongue is a divine gift. From the holy Quran we come to know that the most merciful Almighty has bestowed a mother tongue upon each and every caste, creed and colour.
Mother tongue is, so imporant that the people of a country express their ideas, thoughts, feelings emotions etc. clearly through mother tongue. But it is an irony of fate that the then rulers of Pakistan tried to impose Urdu as mother tongue upon us instead of Bangla. But the people of our country raised their voice against this unlawful decision.
Some of the heroic sons came forward and sacrified their glorious life for the casue of our mother tongue on the 21st February, 1952. Since then this day is called the Shaheed Dibash. Every year we remember this day with solemnity and pay them profound tribute.
Now it is a great pleasure for us that the UNESCO has announced February 21 as the International Mother Language Day to be observed globally in recognition of the sacrifices of the martyrs for establishing the rightful place of Bangla.
It is a great tribute and glowing homage paid by the international community to the Language martyrs of Bangladesh. The sacrifices of all the
martyrs for championing the cause of their mother tongue have received now a glorious recognition by the people of the world.
