It may be mentioned that this year, Bangladesh is celebrating 50 years of its independence.
On March 26, 1971, Bangladesh was proclaimed as an independent nation by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and this led to the Bangladesh Liberation War; and a full-fledged war ensued between Pakistan and Bangladesh liberation forces with Indian support.
The Border Security Force (BSF) had played a key role in the Bangladesh Liberation War, in training of the ‘Mukti Vahini’ and fighting with enemy forces. To commemorate the 50 years of the Bangladesh Liberation War, Border Security Force and Border Guard Bangladesh have launched various programmes across India and Bangladesh. (Page News Service)
