From now on the title ‘Bir’ must be used before the names of freedom fighters, the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs on Thursday issued a gazette notification in this regard.
It says that the Freedom Fighters have been defined as ‘heroic Freedom Fighters’ in Section 2 (11) of the Bangladesh Freedom Fighters Welfare Trust Act, 2018.
In accordance with the law and with the decision of the 13th meeting of the Standing Committee on the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs of the Eleventh National Assembly, the word ‘Bir’ should be used before the names of the heroic Freedom Fighters in all cases, the gazette says.
However, the order comes into effect immediately.
