Requested Action by Commission: Proclaim February 21, 2020 as International Mother Language Day.

Tagged Passions:boards and commissions

Explanation of Request: After the British Empire left India, the newly formed Government of Pakistan declared Urdu to be the sole national language

of both West Pakistan and East Pakistan. People of East Pakistan protested, since the majority of the population s mother language was Bangla.

To demolish the protest, the government of Pakistan outlawed public meeting and rallies. Students with the support of the general people arranged

massive rallies and meetings. Subsequently, millions of Bangladeshis were genocide by 1972 in the name of having the ability to speak their language, self-determination, and hold their culture. They sacrificed their lives for keeping their mother language and every nation s mother language.
