The historic 7 March speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, “Ebarer Songram Amader Muktir Songram, Ebarer Songram Amader Sadhinotar Songram” echoed in the voices of hundreds of students in Sylhet.

Today (Monday) 9:15 in the morning, the historic speech echoed in the voices of hundreds of students Standing in front of the mural of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the Sylhet Deputy Commissioner’s office.

On October 30 in 2017, UNESCO recognized the historic speech as part of the world’s documentary heritage as the landmark fiery speech of Bangabandhu inspired the Bengalees to prepare for the War of Liberation in 1971.

It has been included in the Memory of the World International Register, a list of the world’s important documentary heritage maintained by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

On March 7, Bangabandhu in his historic speech at a mammoth rally in the then ‘Race Course Maidan, now Suhrawardy Udyan, in the city directed the freedom-loving Bangalees for waging a decisive struggle against the Pakistani occupation forces.

In his extempore speech from 4:23 pm before millions of people of former East Pakistan, Bangabandhu in unequivocal term said, “We spilled our blood … we are ready to shed more blood, the people of the country shall be freed, Inshallah!”

“Ebarer sangram amader muktir sangram, ebarer sangram swadhinatar sangram (The struggle this time is for our emancipation, the struggle this time is for our independence)” the great leader and the greatest Bangalee of all times went on to add.

The people were overwhelmed and imbued with the spirit of Bangabandhu’s unparalleled speech of independence regarded only as comparable with the Gettysburg Speech of slain US President Abraham Lincoln.

The whole nation responded spontaneously to Bangabandhu’s call with the thunderous slogan- “Bir Bangalee Astra Dharo, Bangladesh Swadhin Karo” -Brave Bangalees take up arms and free Bangladesh from occupation.

The vigorous speech inspired people of all walks of life to prepare for the war, which eventually began after the Pakistani regime on the black night of March 25 launched attacks on the unarmed Bangalees, the worst genocides in history for the next nine months.
