Sheikh Mujib, the undisputed leader of Bengalis, returned home on January 10, 1972 after being freed from Pakistan’s captivity 24 days after the victory in the Liberation War……. On this day, let us remember the greatest Bengali of all time and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and take a firm oath for building the golden Bangla as dreamt by him in line with the spirit of the Liberation War by bearing his ideology in hearts”.

The proposal also reads: “The Pakistanis had taken various plans to kill Bangabandhu during his incarceration at that time. Bangabandhu was not only tortured, but also taken to the gallows. But the Pakistani rulers had to bow down ultimately to the popularity of Bangabandhu at home and abroad, and his indomitable courage”.

“In the absence of Bangabandhu, the Bengali nation continued the bloody war following the path and ideology of Bangabandhu. On December 16, 1971, the Pakistani occupation forces were forced to surrender,” it said.

“Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman returned to the country on January 10, 1972 via London and New Delhi after being freed from Pakistan prison. On that day, he returned to the country and had architected the original foundation of independence and sovereignty. The 10th January is a special day in the life of the Bangalee nation,” it added.
