The discussion program began with a recitation from the Holy Quran. Special doa and munajat were offered seeking divine blessings for the martyrs, who laid down their valuable lives for the liberation war as well as the injured freedom fighters, and for continued peace and progress of the country. One minute silence was observed in honor of the martyrs of the liberation war in 1971.

Messages given by the Hon'ble President, Hon'ble Prime Minister, Hon’ble Minister for Liberation War Affairs and Hon’ble Chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs on the occasion of the day were read out by the officers of the Mission. Mr. Md Anisuzzaman, Counsellor and Head of Chancery of the Embassy anchored the whole program. A good number of participants took part in discussion and they highlighted the importance of the historic Mujibnagar Day in the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971.

The historic Mujibnagar Day is observed by Bangladesh on 17 April each year and is a turning point in the liberation war against Pakistan in 1971. Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared the independence of Bangladesh in the early hours of 26 March, 1971. To lead the liberation war, a Government in exile, designated Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman its President, was formed on 17 April, 1971, and they took their oath in Mujibnagar. The Mujibnagar Day is observed in remembrance of that historic day.

The Ambassador of Bangladesh to Kuwait H.E. S M Abul Kalam in his speech highlighted the events that led to the formation of the Government in exile and its oath taking in Mujibnagar, the then Baidyanathtala in the Kustia district. He also detailed how the Government in exile led the liberation war in the absence of Bangabandhu and achieved his dream of an independent Bangladesh.

He urged all present in the discussion to be united under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to achieve the ‘Sonar Bangla’ dreamt by the father of the nation.
