High Court asks government to declare March 7 as ‘National Day’

The High Court (HC) has ordered the government to declare the March 7, the day when Bagabandhu Sheikjh Mujibur Rahman gave his historic speech, as ‘National Day’.  

The HC also directed the authorities to publish a gazette notification within one month.

The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order after disposing of a rule in this regard on Tuesday.

The day  became memorable as Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman delivered his historic speech at a large gathering at Racecourse ground (now Suhrawardy Udyan) on March 7, 1971.

Earlier on November 20, 2017, a HC bench issued a rule asking the government to explain why it should not be directed to declare March 7 as a historic national day.
