Dhaka: State Minister for Culture KM Khalid said that as much blood has been shed in the history of the world, no other month has shed so much blood as in the month of August. On August 15, 1975, the anti-independence evil assassins killed Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the greatest father of the Bengali nation, with his family through a terrible conspiracy.

On August 21, 2004, a terrible grenade attack was carried out to make the Bangladesh Awami League leaderless. On August 6 and 9, 1945, atomic bombs were dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by imperialist America.

The State Minister said these things in the closing ceremony of the month-long program titled ‘Strength from grief, strong conviction to fulfill dreams’ organized by Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on the occasion of mourning August at the National Theater auditorium of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital on Wednesday (August 31) evening.

Bangladesh Art Academy Director General Liaquat Ali Lucky spoke as a special guest on the occasion as Culture Secretary Md. Abul Mansur.

The chief guest said that Ziaur Rahman’s family was involved in all the assassinations or attempted assassinations on Bangabandhu’s family. The Father of the Nation Bangabandhu was brutally murdered in his family by the direct conspiracy of Ziaur Rahman under the supervision of the US intelligence agency CIA. Again, in the presence of Khaleda Zia’s vested administration, a terrible grenade attack was carried out on 21 August 2004 under the orders of her son Tarek Zia.

KM Khalid said that attempts have been made to kill Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina 19 times so far. But by the mercy of Almighty Allah and the prayers of the people, he was saved every time.

Secretary of Culture in the speech of the special guest. Abul Mansoor said, Bangladesh’s independence was not an accidental event. Under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Bengali nation gained the much-desired independence through 23 years of agitation-struggle and bloody liberation war. The land called Bangladesh or Bangabhumi has never been managed or ruled by any soil child of this country. Bangabandhu was the first son of this soil who got the responsibility of leading the country by bringing independence to this land. Sonar man is one of the main artisans of Bangabandhu’s dream of building a golden Bengal. And it is possible to make a golden person through cultural practice.

Later, the State Minister addressed the chief guest at the concluding phase of the month-long recitation and discussion titled ‘Shravan Shokgatha’ organized by the Bangladesh Recitation Coordinating Council on the occasion of the 47th martyrdom anniversary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the National Mourning Day-2022 at the open stage adjacent to the coffee house of the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
