21st February - International Mother Language Day declared by UNESCO
Language Martyr Monument

21st February - International Mother Language Day ! Our love & respect to those language martyrs  by the sacrifice of whose lives in 1952, we got freedom of speech in talking in our mother language Bangla as state language. 21st February is declared as International Mother Language day by UNESCO on 17th November 1999.So the 21st February is marked as International Mother Language Day, a UNESCO-sanctioned event that promotes the global recognition of a nation's right to speak its mother language. Bangladesh is the only nation in the world that fought for the freedom of Mother Language "Bangla" in 1952 and won its independence on the basis of preserving the right to speak its own mother language, and this day has a special emotional significance across the country and all over the world. On this day, we show respect to language martyrs giving flowers at the ground of language martyr monument and we celebrate special cultural programs & book fairs on behalf of 21st February to represent our glorious history of freedom.

Hi Husna Love,

How are you doing, dear? Wow! This is so cool. I wish more nations would've done this. I find it so said with this part of any culture is forgotten. Surely it's part of those people that has died:-(

I hope you're doing well, and that you have a great weekend:-)

Hello, Husna,

Thank you for celebrating this day and for sharing with us a brief background about it. It’s informative to know that Bangladesh was the only country to fight for the use of its mother tongue. Wow!
