Let new generation know country’s real history: Mujibul

DHAKA, Mar 24, 2017 (BSS) - Railway Minister Mujibul Haque today urged freedom fighters and other concerned to inform the real history of the 1971 Liberation War.

"Let the new generation know the real history of Bangladesh . . . So that none can misguide them any way," he said while speaking at a 'Children's Art Competition and Prize Giving Ceremony" at New Model School and College at Dhanmondi here this evening.

Bangabandhu Foundation organized the programme on the occasion of 98th birth anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with its President Principal Gazi Delwar Hossain in the chair.

Referring to different development activities of the present government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the railway minister also called upon new generation to contribute to building a 'Sonar Bangla' as dreamt by the Father of the Nation.

He said the country is progressing under the charismatic and uncompromising leadership of Sheikh Hasina as it has already earned fame both at home and abroad.

Lauding the overall activities of the Muktijouddha Foundation, Mujibul said, "It would help protect our history of Liberation War from the conspirators out to destroy the actual history of the country."

Among others, SP Mahbubur Rahman and Dr SMA Zafor spoke there.

Later, the minister distributed awards among the winners of the art competition.
