Fifty years of Bangladesh independence

Today is Independence Day in Bangladesh (Bengali: স্বাধীনতা দিবস Shadhinôta Dibôs) and a national holiday. It commemorates the country's declaration of independence from Pakistan in the early hours of 26 March 1971 by the leader of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The founding fathers could not have predicted that their nation was to dominate the headlines today because of genocide in Myanmar.
