Every year, the March 26 brings the most tragic reminiscence of the history’s
blackest episode that heralded a nine-month bloody ordeal from the night of
March 25, 1971, achieving the long-cherished independence on December 16 the
same year at the cost of a sea of blood.

In the wake of the military crackdown, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who became the undisputed leader of the then Pakistan
following the massive victory of his party, Awami League, in the 1970 general
elections, declared the independence of Bangladesh through the then EPR (East
Pakistan Rifles) wireless at 00-30 hours on March 26 (the night following
March 25) in 1971 at his historic Road-32 residence at Dhanmondi here.

The great leader also called upon the people to build up strong resistance
against the Pakistani barbaric occupation forces.

The Pakistani military junta, in a bid to stop the legitimate movement of
the Bangalees, arrested Bangabandhu on that night following his declaration
of independence.

Later, Bangabandhu was taken to the then West Pakistan where he had to spend
nine months in a dark condemned cell.

Bangabandhu wrote down the declaration of independence soon after the
Pakistani army cracked down on the fateful night of March 25, 1971.

The declaration of independence was soon put on air by wireless. The
declaration was first broadcast by Awami League leader MA Hannan from
Kalurghat Radio Station in the port city of Chittagong on March 26, 1971.

The Pakistani military junta in their monstrous outburst unleashed a bloody
holocaust breaking the silence of the night following March 25 in 1971 when
they mercilessly killed hundreds of innocent sleeping Bangalees, including
teachers, students, police, soldiers, pedestrians and rickshaw-pullers, here.

The nation soon launched the War of Liberation at the call of Father of the
Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in the early hours of March 26.

Bangladesh emerged as an independent and sovereign country on December 16,
1971 with the surrender of the Pakistani occupation forces, who killed three
million innocent civilians, perpetrated atrocities on two lakh Bangalee women
and burnt down lakhs of houses across the country during the nine-month
bloody war.
