‘Include independence manifesto in syllabus’

Speakers at a discussion yesterday urged the government to include the 'Manifesto of Independence' in academic syllabus to present the authentic history of the country's independence before the new generation.

The programme was organised at Tangail Press Club auditorium, marking the golden jubilee of reading out the independence manifesto.

Speakers said March 3 in 1971, was not only the day of reading out the manifesto, it was the day when Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was formally anointed the title 'Father of the Nation.' 

They said if Bangabandhu was the leader, architect and source of inspiration, Chhatra League was the main driving force. If Bangabandhu was the engineer, Chhatra League was the mason.

Noor-E-Alam Siddique, one of the four student leaders in history, and Shahidul Islam, general secretary of Jatiya Party, joined the discussion virtually, with Rabeya Siraj, widow of Shahjahan Siraj, in the chair.

Shajahan Siraj, one of the key organisers of the Liberation War, read out the manifesto of the country's independence in presence of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and millions of others on March 3, 1971.
