On Independence Day, Sajeeb Wazed, ICT Affairs Advisor to the prime minister, paid homage to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Father of the Nation, and the gallant freedom fighters who played pivotal roles in Bangladesh's Liberation War.

In a heartfelt post on his verified Facebook page, Wazed recounted the historical night of March 26, over five decades ago, when Bangabandhu made the decisive declaration of independence moments before his arrest by the Pakistani military. “26 March, our Independence Day. On this day 53 years back, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared our independence just before he was arrested and taken away by the Pak Army in the middle of the night," Wazed wrote.

Echoing Bangabandhu's powerful wireless message from that fateful night, Wazed shared, “'This may be my last message: from today Bangladesh is independent. I call upon the people of Bangladesh, wherever you might be and with whatever you have, to resist the occupation army. Your fight must go on until the last soldier of the Pakistan occupation army is expelled from the soil of Bangladesh and final victory is achieved.’” UNB
