Bangladesh Independence Day

March 26 is celebrated as Bangladesh Independence Day. It commemorates the day in 1971 when Bangladesh declared independence from Pakistan, leading to the Bangladesh Liberation War. The declaration of independence followed escalating tensions between East and West Pakistan over political and economic disparities. The Bangladesh Liberation War lasted for nine months until December 16, 1971, when Pakistan surrendered to the joint forces of Bangladesh and India. Bangladesh Independence Day is a national holiday in Bangladesh, marked by various ceremonies, parades, and cultural events to honor the sacrifices made during the struggle for independence and to celebrate the nation's sovereignty and freedom.
