UN honors 12 fallen peacekeepers from Bangladesh

DHAKA: The United Nations (UN) awarded ‘Dag
Hammarskjold Medal’ to 119 fallen peacekeepers, including 12 Bangladeshis,
from 27 member states to honor their supreme sacrifice.

The UN awarded those fallen heroes who lost their lives on duty in 2018 in
various parts of the world to ensure global peace under the aegis of the UN
Peace Operations, said a press release here today.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres awarded the medals received by the
respective Permanent Representatives of the 27 countries at the event to
observe the ‘International Day of the UN Peacekeepers’.

Permanent Representatives, senior diplomats, officials of the Arms Forces
and Police from several member states and high level UN officials
participated the solemn ceremony.

The fallen peacekeepers of Bangladesh who posthumously received the ‘Dag
Hammarskjold Medals’ are: Sainik Arzan Howlader and Sainik Md Ripul Miah who
served with UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the
Central African Republic (MINUSCA), Sainik Mohammad Jamal Uddin, Warrant
officer Mohammad Abul Kalam Azad, Sainik Mohammad Rayhan Ali, Lance Corporal
Mohammad Akter Hossain and Sainik Mohammad Rasheduzzaman who served with the
United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali
(MINUSMA), Sainik Md Zane Alam who served with the UN Organization
Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO),
Sainik Md Motiar Rahman, Sainik Md Monjur Ali, Lance Corporal Md Mizanur
Rahaman and Lieutenant Commander Md Ashraf Siddiqui who served with the UN
Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

Permanent Representative (PR) of Bangladesh to the UN Ambassador Masud Bin
Momen received the medals on behalf of Bangladesh.

Defense Advisor of this Mission Brigadier-General Khan Firoz Ahmed,
relevant other officers from the Mission and officers from Bangladesh Army,
Navy and Police working at the UN Headquarters were also present.

The Permanent Mission will make special arrangements to send the medals to
the family members of the 12 fallen peacekeepers of Bangladesh.

At the opening of today’s observance of the ‘International Day of the UN
Peacekeepers’, the UN Secretary-General laid floral wreaths in honour of all
fallen peacekeepers at the Peacekeepers Memorial Site in the North Lawn of
the UNHQs.

In his remarks at the ‘Dag Hammarskjold Medal’ ceremony, Antonio Guterres
said, “Today, we honour 119 brave men and women who lost their lives while
serving the United Nations. Hailing from different backgrounds, our fallen
heroes were united in their efforts to help the UN attain its most important
objective- to save future generations from the scourge of war.”

“The medal we posthumously honour them with bears the name of Secretary-
General Hammarskjold. It is inscribed with his name as well their own-
forever linking them in our hearts and in our memories,” he said.

The Secretary-General offered his highest tributes to the fallen
peacekeeper and put his sincere condolence to their loved ones left behind.

The UN Under-Secretary-General of Department of Peace Operations Jean-
Pierre Lacroix and Under Secretary-General of Department of Operational
Support Atul Khare also spoke at the event.

The congregation paid respect to the departed souls by observing one minute
silence. The global theme for this year’s commemoration is ‘Protecting
Civilians, Protecting Peace’.

Bangladesh is the second largest contributor of uniformed personnel to UN
Peacekeeping.

It currently deploys more than 6,600 military and police personnel in nine
peacekeeping missions in Abyei, the Central African Republic, the Democratic
Republic of Congo, Haiti, Lebanon, Mali, Sudan, South Sudan and Western
Sahara.

So far, 146 peacekeepers from Bangladesh have lost their lives on duty
while serving UN Peace Operations in various parts of the world.
