Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is doing the miracle in her mission of building a Sonar Bangla (Golden Bengal), the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
This was stated by Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali at a seminar commemorating Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971 at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) today.
The seminar was organized jointly by JNU and India Foundation, a think tank. JNU Vice-Chancellor M Jagades Kumar and India Foundation Director Maj. Gen. Dhruv Kotoch also spoke at the event.
Syed Muazzem said Bangabandhu’s bold and visionary leadership showed Bangladesh, how to stand up from a war-ravaged situation and his able daughter current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is doing the miracle in the mission of completing her father’s unfinished tasks.
“The contribution of these two great leaders of Bangladesh, the father, and the daughter, has been best described by none other than the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, who said, “Bangabandhu founded Bangladesh and his daughter Sheikh Hasina saved it,” said the freedom fighter-turned diplomat.
He said under the dynamic leadership of Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh is today one of the fastest growing economies in the world with 7.86% GDP growth.
“Bangladesh is now often mentioned as a ‘model of economic development’. Recently we have qualified for the graduation from LDC status to the status of a Middle Income Country. Our ultimate pursuit is to emerge as a developed country by 2041,” Ali said.
Recalling with gratitude India’s wholehearted support to the Bangladesh Liberation War, the envoy paid homage to the brave Indian soldiers who had laid down their lives for our independence.
He also paid tributes to the valiant war veterans who had fought side by side with us in our War of Independence. The envoy told the seminar that the Bangladesh premier during her last visit to India in April 2017 honored members of families of the Indian martyrs through an unprecedented Sommanona
or honor giving ceremony in Delhi.
Some more families of the war martyrs will be honored on the upcoming Victory Day on Dec. 16 at the Eastern Command in Kolkata, he said.
Bangladesh has also honored all its friends, who extended their support and cooperation to our War of Liberation, with the’ Friends of Bangladesh Liberation War Award’.
“The emotional bonds stemming from the invaluable contributions of the government and people of India during our liberation war remain a dominant factor in Bangladesh political, cultural and social wave,” said Syed Muazzem Ali.
He said Bangladesh and India have been able to further consolidate the friendly bilateral relations to a new level which is well beyond the “strategic partnership”, under the leadership of our two prime ministers.
He said “We count on India’s assistance in furthering our successes. Together we would build cherished “Sonar Bangla” [Golden Bengal]. That would be the best tribute we can pay to our martyrs and freedom fighters. And off- course Bangladesh’s success will be your success, as you were directly involved in the birth of our nation.”
