The country achieved independence on this day in 1971 after the Pakistani occupation forces surrendered after a bloody nine-month war.

Along with the government, different socio-political, educational and cultural institutions and organizations have chalked out a series of programs to celebrate the day. Bangladeshis at home and abroad will celebrate the day.

Programs have been curtailed because of the coronavirus pandemic this year.

In a message on the occasion, the PM said: "This Bangladesh is the country of Lalon Shah, Rabindranath, Kazi Nazrul, Jibanananda ... this Bangladesh is the Bangladesh of Shahjalal, Shah Poran, Shah Mokdum, Khanjahan Ali, this Bangladesh is the Bangladesh of Sheikh Mujib and 16.5 crores of Bangalees – this country is for all. We won’t allow anyone to create any division and anarchy in the name of religion," reports UNB.

"The people of the country will move on towards prosperity, progress and development keeping the religious morale high," she said.
