Most Beautiful places -Shaheed Minar

In 1947, Pakistan was formed with two regions, East Pakistan (also called East Bengal) and West Pakistan. The native tongue of West Pakistan is Urdu and Bangla is native tongue of East Pakistan. The Government of Pakistan ordained Urdu as the sole national language, the Bengali-speaking majority of East Pakistan protested it. As a result Pakistani Government killed many of Bengali protesters who were demanding identical status to their native language, Bangla.
A prominent Bangladeshi sculptor Mr. Hamidur Rahman made a designed of Shaheed Minar.
In 2000, UNESCO declared 21 February International Mother Language Day. In 2000 now the whole world celebrates 21st February as international mother language day.
