Location & Tradition

Welcome to the vibrant and culturally diverse nation of Bangladesh!

Historic moment

In 1952, Bangladesh, at that time East Pakistan, experienced a noteworthy language movement in which the Bengali-speaking community advocated for their linguistic rights. The movement reached its peak when Bangla (Bengali) was officially recognized as the language of East Pakistan. Nevertheless, the fight for autonomy persisted, eventually leading to a liberation war in 1971 and the establishment of an independent Bangladesh. Presently, on February 21st, the language movement is honored as International Mother Language Day, highlighting the significance of cultural identity and the preservation of diverse languages.
