Month of independence begins today

The nation is getting ready to observe the 47th anniversary of independence by paying the highest homage to the war heroes who made Bangladesh a sovereign state through a nine-month war of independence that began on March 26, 1971, reports BSS. The historical month of independence begins today, giving a heartbreaking reminder to the genocide that the Pakistani occupation forces carried out in this country from March to mid-December in 1971. The month also made the nation proud for the historical 7th March speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, which has been recognised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural  Organisation (UNESCO) as part of the world's documentary heritage.
