The 26th of March is the most important day for Bangladeshi people. The Independence Day of Bangladesh (Bengali: স্বাধীনতা দিবস Shwadhinata Dibosh), also referred to as 26th March is a national holiday. It commemorates the country’s declaration of independence from Pakistan on late hours of 25 March 1971.
Good Neighbors Bangladesh celebrated the 47th Independence Day, with a vow to build a standard, happy life for the mothers and children, providing freedom from violence and poverty. The war for independence was a fight for liberation from foreign rule, which started on the 26th March 1971 and lasted until Bangladesh’s victory on the 16th of December. Every year we observe the day showing great honor to the freedom fighters that won the war and enabled independence for Bangladesh.
