Hasan urges all to honour past heroes for advancing nation

Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said everyone would have to remember the tale of heroics and honour the heroes of the past for advancing the state.

“There are no many photographs of the great Liberation War and the photographs will be destroyed if those are not preserve properly. The initiative of preserving the photos in an album through compiling is really very praiseworthy,” he said, addressing the three-day long exhibition of rare photographs snapped during the Liberation War.

The Armed Forces Division (AFD) organized the exhibition marking the golden jubilee of the Independence at Chithrashala auditorium at Shilpakala here.

AFD Principal Staff Officer (PSO) Lieutenant General Waker-Uz-Zaman, and high officials of Bangladesh Army, Bangladesh Navy, and Bangladesh Air Force and media personalities took part in the function.

Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary, extended thanks to the AFD for organising the exhibition and publishing the album.

He said the Bangalee nation achieved independence through shedding blood under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971 in the history of five thousand years of Bangalees for the first time. Earlier, Fakir Majnu Shah revolted in 1786, Titumir made Bansher Killa in 1831, Surya Sen looted Chattogram Jail in 1930 and Netaji Subhash Basu showed dream for independence in 1944, but freedom has not come.

On the other hand, Bangabandhu inspired the Bangalees and crores of people to take part in the Liberation War. And the independence has been achieved in exchange for the lives of 30 lakh people, he added.

He said, “I saw the Liberation War in my childhood. Many people in my village were killed. I also thought to join the war. But I was too minor. But our freedom fighters and our armed forces had fought. We achieved independence with the blood of Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, and Christians.”
