Bangabandhu’s life, sacrifice being showcased in NYC’s Times Square

The life sketch of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is now being screened at Times Square of New York.

It will continue until August 16.

Bangabandhu’s digital portrait will also be screened for 720 times at the square, a major commercial intersection, tourist destination and entertainment centre in the neighbourhood of the Midtown Manhattan section of New York City.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen thanked Bangladeshi expatriate Fahim Feroj who has taken the initiative.

Through his NY Dreams Production, a New York-based organisation, Fahim has taken the initiative to showcase Bangabandhu, his great political work and sacrifice in the international platform, marking the National Mourning Day.

EXIM Bank and Bangladesh Finance came forward to help him implement it.

Dr Momen said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is likely to visit New York next month to attend the UNGA and it is a good initiative ahead of her visit.

He said the government is trying to brand Bangladesh positively as it is now a land of opportunity with its vibrant economy.
