Bangladesh, Independence Day, Independence, On This Day.

Bangladeshi Independence Day

 

Since 1971, on this day, the people of Bangladesh have celebrated their Independence from Pakistan.

Very late into the night of March 25th, 1971, there was an official start to the ‘Liberation War‘ as the formerly known East-Pakistan decided to rebel against the rest of the country.

In a nine-month war that cost an alleged 3 million lives, the ‘Mukti Bahini’ fought against the Pakistani Army with support from some Indian collaborators.

The war would be won on 19th December, which is commonly known as ‘Victory Day’ amongst Bangladeshi communities.
