They shed blood so that others speak their mother tongue


On February 21st, 1952 Bangladeshi people shed their blood to speak officially in their mother language . That day of the history is now celebrated as “International Mother Language Day”. Each year, the local Bangladeshi community organizes an event to revive that memory.
