In his welcome speech, Assistant High Commissioner Arif Mohammad remembered with deep respect the great architect of independence, the greatest Bengali father of the nation, “Bangabandhu” Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, four national leaders, 30 lakh martyrs, 2 lakh mothers and sisters, and the nation’s best children, brave freedom fighters, for whom we have acquired independent sovereign Bangladesh in return for their great sacrifices.

He pointed out that Bangabandhu’s 7th March speech is one of the most memorable speeches in the world and on this day in 1971, he called for freedom in a thunderous voice at the then race course ground. On that day, the entire Bengali nation recited the immortal poem of “Bangabandhu”, the epic poet of politics. This epic of only 18 minutes sounded the great mantra of the liberation of the Bengali nation ‘independence’. Bangabandhu’s clear and brilliant speech shook the Pakistani dictator.

Mentioning that historians from different parts of the world are constantly researching the 7th March speech, Arif Mohammad said “An exceptional speech among the world’s greatest speeches is Bangabandhu’s 7th March speech, which was completely unscripted.

The 7th March speech is Bangabandhu’s immortal work, Bengali’s greatest epic poem, which is composed of the Bengali nation’s struggle and cherished dream of independence.”

“Bangabandhu’s 7th March speech will give encouragement and inspiration to the oppressed and freedom-loving people of all societies throughout the ages. It was Bangabandhu’s lifelong dream to turn independent-sovereign Bangladesh into a happy-prosperous “Sonar Bangla” (Golden Bengal). Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina called upon everyone to work from their respective positions to realize this dream to make Bangladesh a developed, prosperous and smart country by 2041”, he added.
