Today is the 50th anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman receiving the Julio Curie Medal. On this day in 1973, this medal was officially handed over to Bangabandhu. On the occasion of the golden jubilee of the father of the nation receiving this highly prestigious medal, a discussion meeting was held at Sonargaon University Green Road Campus Auditorium on Tuesday (May 23).
Bangladesh became independent in 1971 under the leadership of this undisputed leader. Just two years later, the World Peace Council officially awarded Bangabandhu the ‘Julio Curie’ international recognition. In the meeting of the Presidential Committee of the World Peace Council, in the presence of about 200 members of 140 countries and based on consensus, it was decided to award the Julio Curie medal to Bangabandhu, considering the context of Bangabandhu’s life philosophy and the general leadership of the Liberation War of Bangladesh.
According to that decision, the World Peace Council announced the name of Bangabandhu as the recipient of the medal on 10 October 1972. And the next year on May 23, the then Secretary General of the Parishad, Ramesh Chandra, presented the medal to Bangabandhu in a grand ceremony of the Asian Peace Conference. On that occasion, Ramesh Chandra said, ‘Bangabandhu is not only of Bengal, he is of the world and he is the friend of the world.’ It was the first international medal won by a state leader in independent Bangladesh.
