The Embassy of Bangladesh in Abu Dhabi has celebrated the historic 7th of March with due dignity through various programs. On Sunday (March 8) morning, the day’s activities began with the official hoisting of the national flag at the embassy premises with the participation of all the officers and employees of the mission and expatriates. Honorable Ambassador Mr. Md. Abu Jafar, along with other embassy officials, laid a wreath at the portrait of the nation. Leaders of various socio-cultural organizations including Abu Dhabi Janata Bank, Bangladesh Biman Office and Bangladesh School and Bangabandhu Parishad, Bangladesh Samiti also paid homage by laying wreaths at the portrait of the Father of the Nation.
At the beginning of the discussion meeting presided over by the Ambassador in the auditorium of the Embassy, the speeches delivered by His Excellency the President and the Hon’ble Prime Minister on the occasion of this day were read out and Bangabandhu’s historic speech on March 7 and special documentary made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were displayed. Community leaders, including the president of the local Bangabandhu Parishad, took part in the discussion and recalled the significance of the day and Bangabandhu’s contribution in every step towards Bangladesh’s independence.
In his concluding remarks, the Ambassador paid deep homage to the memory of Bangabandhu and said that the speech on March 7 was a timeless and impeccable poem emanating from the heart of Bangabandhu which would be a source of eternal inspiration not only to the people of Bengal but also to the oppressed freedom fighters. Because Bangabandhu had Bangladesh and Bengalis in his heart, it was possible for him to give such an impeccable speech. Considering the context of contemporary world politics, he gave an outline of the ultimate rights and independence of the people of Bengal in this speech with great wisdom and foresight. As Bangabandhu was an undisputed leader, the Bengalis got an independent sovereign state under his leadership.
The Ambassador further said that the dream of Bangabandhu for the establishment of Sonar Bangla, his worthy daughter has announced Vision 2021 and Vision 2041 for the realization of that dream. Under his able leadership, the goal of the first stage has been achieved and Bangladesh has already achieved the status of a middle-income developing country. Now the government is working for the second step i.e. to develop the country. The Ambassador called upon everyone to contribute from their respective positions in achieving this goal. He opined that in order to improve the image of Bangladesh in foreign lands, every expatriate should be accustomed to better behavior. He called upon all to take initiative to spread the ideology of Bangabandhu and the spirit of liberation war among the future generations. The meeting ended with special prayers for the forgiveness of the souls of the Father of the Nation and his family members and for the prosperity and development of the country.
