Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) observed National Martyrs’ Day and the International Mother Language Day on its Bashundhara R/A campus on Monday, February 22, 2021.
IUB students, along with the Vice-Chancellor, Treasurer, Deans of five schools, members of the faculty, and administration brought out a barefooted procession that circled the campus and ended at the foot of a temporary Shaheed Minar set up in the amphitheater area where floral wreaths were placed in groups.
In his speech, IUB’s Vice-Chancellor Tanweer Hasan, PhD, said, “Our mother language has a key role to play in everything we have achieved with regards to society, civilization, culture, and development. Language is one of the keys to development and one of the main prerequisites is to consolidate scientific and technological knowledge. The best way to acquire scientific knowledge is in our mother language”.
The program ended with song and dance performances and recitations of poetry by IUB teachers and students.
