Please join the Bangladesh Student Association for a celebration of International Mother Language Day. Traditionally observed on February 21, International Mother Language Day commemorates with profound honor and dignity the martyrs who sacrificed their lives on this day in 1952 for the language movement of Bangladesh. This day had been observed as The "Martyrs Day " of Bangladesh before getting recognition by UNESCO as the "International Mother Language Day" on November 17, 1999. Now, February 21 is a worldwide annual observance to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity. The UNO Bangladesh Student Association invites the UNO community to participate in this special observance on March 20.
