Its a shame that the majority of people in the world do not know about the International mother language day. It is a way to remember how much we love our language and how far we can go for its protection. In 1952, when Bangladesh was a part of Pakistan, they tried to make Urdu the official language, but the Bangladeshis protested, resulting in sacrificing their lives. Just google and have a look what happens to the “Shahid Minar” premises on the day of February 21. Fascinating!
