There is no Shaheed Minar in 90 percent educational institutions in three upazilas of Meherpur district, depriving the students of the opportunity to pay tributes to the heroes of Language Movement.

The authorities did not build any Shaheed Minar in those institutions even after 68 years of the Language Movement although it is an instruction from the government to observe the International Mother Language Day on February 21 in all educational institutions across the country.

District Education Office source said there are 168 high schools and colleges, 308 primary schools and 169 kindergartens in the district.

Of them, only 49 institutions have their own Shaheed Minar and there is no Shaheed Minar at private institutions and Kindergartens.

Talking to UNB, Omor Ali, District unit Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal(JSD) President, said “It is disgraceful that such a big number of educational institutions do not have Shaheed Minars. The present government should look into the matter.”

Fazle Rahman, District Primary Education Officer, said, “There are Shaheed Minars only in four primary schools out of 308 schools. It would be possible to construct Shaheed Minars in every school if Shaheed Minar construction is included in the building construction projects of the schools.

Aman Uddin Mondol, District Education Officer (acting), said “It is not clear why there is no Shaheed Minars in most of the educational institutions of the district. I have joined here recently. I will inform the higher authorities about the matter.”

Md Ataul Gani, Deputy Commissioner of Meherpur, said “It is very regretful that 90 percent schools lack Shaheed Minars. However, Shaheed Minars will be constructed in all the educational institutions of the district before 21st February next year.”
