February, the month of the Language Movement begins on Monday. The nation is to pay tributes to the valiant sons of the soil who were killed during the language movement in the month of February in 1952.
The Bengali nation achieved the dignity of their mother tongue on February 21, 1952, through the supreme sacrifices made by Salam, Shafiq, Barkat, Rafique and others during a massive movement.
February is the month of mourning. Yet, it is a matter of dignity for the nation as only the Bengalese have sacrificed lives for establishing Bangla as the state language. The Language Day – February 21 – is also recognized as the International Mother Language Day.
