We salute the martyrs of the Language Movement

February is a month very close to the hearts of Bangladeshis all across the globe. Unprecedented history was made on February 21, 1952 when the sons of this land laid their lives for their mother tongue. It is for those brave souls that we are able to speak in the Bangla language today, and are so proud of it. The day is now commemorated worldwide as International Mother Language Day as we remember the martyrs with deep gratitude and reverence.
