The historic Homecoming Day of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be observed across the country in a befitting manner on Thursday. 

After 290 days of captivity in Pakistan jail, Bangabandhu, the undisputed leader of the nation and supreme commander of the country’s great Liberation War, returned to the sacred soil of independent Bangladesh via London and New Delhi on January 10 in 1972.

On March 25, 1971, Pakistani occupation forces arrested the architect of the country’s Independence from his Dhanmondi residence during their late-night crackdown on the people of Bangladesh (the then East Pakistan) and sent him to the then West Pakistan.

The return of the Bangabandhu later appeared to be crucial in the subsequent political history of Bangladesh and re-established the spirit and norms of the Liberation War in the country.
