बांग्लादेशः पचास वर्षों की यात्रा
बांग्लादेश के लिए 16 दिसम्बर 1971 एक ऐतिहासिक तवारीख है। इस दिन को पाकिस्तानी सेना की पराजय और इसके बाद एक स्वतंत्र बांग्लादेश के रूप में उभरने के उपलक्ष्य में विजय दिवस के रूप में मनाया जाता है। यह 2021 वर्ष विशेष रूप से महत्त्वपूर्ण है क्योंकि यह उस ऐतिहासिक घटना का स्वर्ण जयंती वर्ष है। 1971 का बांग्लादेश का मुक्ति संग्राम उन पुरुषों और महिलाओं के दृढ़ संकल्प और बलिदान में अंतर्निहित उच्च भावनाओं को जगाता है, जिन्होंने पश्चिमी पाकिस्तान द्वारा अपने ही पूर्वी क्षेत्र के लोगों पर किए गए भारी दमन और संहार का सामना किया था।
