১৬ ডিসেম্বর মহান বিজয় দিবস।
The nation is set to celebrate today the 43rd anniversary of its glorious victory over the Pakistani occupation forces, pledging to establish a non-communal, prosperous and democratic Bangladesh with the spirit of the Liberation War.
On this day back in 1971, East Pakistan under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman won its emancipation and emerged as an independent state, Bangladesh.
General AAK Niazi, who commanded the Pakistan army, surrendered with 93,000 soldiers to the allied forces of freedom fighters and Indian army at Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka following a miserable defeat in the war that broke out in March.
Three million people sacrificed their lives for freedom while two lakh women fell victim to physical torture, including rape by the occupation forces and their local collaborators like Razakars, Al-Badar and Al-Shams.
Greetings to Everyone, Long live Bangladesh.
