SAUEDC Celebrates National Martyrs Day


In memory of our martyrs in the language movement of 1952, SAU Entrepreneurship Development Club (SAUEDC) paid tribute to our fallen heroes for whom we can talk in Bangla today by giving flowers in Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Shahid Minar at 12 AM. Our mother language is Bangla and it’s a part of our enriched Bengali culture which we inherited after thousand years of history. But after the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the Pakistan government wanted to tarnish our sacred culture and declared that Urdu would be the only state language of Pakistan. People from every sector of East Pakistan started rioting against this forceful, illogical decision which led to the uprising 21st February, 1952 in which we lost the lives of Salam, Barkat, Rafiq, Shafiq, Jabbar and many others.  The Pakistani government had to make Bangla one of the state languages and we still observe the day by giving flowers in Shahid Minar.
