The High Court on Tuesday has directed the Historic 7 March Speech of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to declare as National Day. A gazette notification has also been issued to declare the 7 March as a National Day within a month. 

A High Court bench comprising Justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Qamrul Quader passed the order after settling the rule in this regard. 

It has been ordered to report within a month as well as placing the portrait of Bangabandhu in the proper place in upazila and districts. 

The High Court also issued a rule seeking why the Historic 7 March should not be included in the textbook.

The Cabinet Secretary has been directed to give a written explanation within a month and give the reason why the High Court order of 2009 was not implemented yet.
