Online Desk : The High Court (HC) today ordered authorities concerned to declare March 7 as ‘Historic National Day’ and issue gazette notification within next one month in this regard. A High Court division bench comprising Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order while hearing a writ petition filed in this regard.
The court also ordered the government to construct mural of Father of
the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in all districts and upazilas
within Mujib Year.

The court also issued a rule asking as to why it shall not pass order to
include glorious history of March 7 in primary, secondary, intermediate and
varsity curriculum.

Supreme Court lawyer Dr Bashir Ahmed filed the writ and also moved it
before the court, while deputy attorney general Abdullah Al Mahmud Bashar
appeared for the state.

The High Court on November 20, 2017, had issued a rule asking the
authorities concerned to explain in three weeks as to why March 7 shall not
be declared as Historic National Day.

The court in its rule also asked why a stage will not be recreated at the place in Suhrawardy Udyan, where Bangabandhu stood and delivered his historic speech on March 7, 1971, accorded reception to former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and where Pakistani occupation army surrendered to the allied force on December 16, 1971. The High Court today declared absolute that rule.
