Dhaka: Chief of Army Staff General SM Shafiuddin Ahmed has inaugurated the sculpture ‘We will not forget you’ built in memory of seven brave sons of the nation, a symbol of Bengali pride, sacrifice and bravery.
On Sunday (November 12), he inaugurated the sculpture built in Matikata Military Police Checkpost area of Dhaka Cantonment.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) informed this in a press release.
According to the circular, on March 26, 1971, responding to the call of independence of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the greatest Bengali father of the nation, the Bengali members of the armed forces joined the armed forces shoulder to shoulder with the masses and jumped into the liberation war on December 16, 1971. Behind the achievement of this independence are the supreme sacrifices of 30 lakh martyrs and seven fearless Bir Shreshtras.
The ‘We Will Not Forget You’ sculpture depicts the ‘semi-circular wall’ – the struggle-earned independent sovereign Bangladesh. In front of the sculpture is the ‘fountain’ – a reflection of riverine Bangladesh.
The connecting lines from the fountain to the wall are ‘Symbols of the Sun’ – signifying that the Virashreshthas are the sun children of the nation and are like the rays of the sun, a source of light and unfailing inspiration for the future generations of the country.
Senior military officers, other officers, junior commissioned officers, other ranks and media representatives were present on the occasion.
