Historic six-point day observed in Sylhet

11The historic six-point day was observed in Sylhet on sunday with a renewed call for completing the trial of the rest of the war criminals and Bangabandhu’s unfinished tasks to materialize his dreams.
Awami League (AL), its associate organizations, different socio- cultural and professional bodies observed the day through daylong programmes.
To mark the day, Sylhet SL arranged a Discussion at zilaparished this afternoon.
Sylhet District SL president Ajajul Haque  presided over the meeting while Central AL Organizing secretary Advocate  Misbah uddin Siraz, Sylhet District AL secretary Shofiqur Rahman Chowdhury, among others, addressed it.
The speakers said the six-point demand, declared by Bangabandhu, was a Magna Carta in the history that aimed at liberating Bengali people from all sorts of oppression, injustice and exploitation perpetrated by Pakistan.
The speakers also paid rich tributes to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who spearheaded the movement and sacrificed his life for establishing rights of the people.
Speaking on the occasion, Central AL Organizing secretary Advocate  Misbah uddin Siraz said the Sylhet city unit AL is united for accomplishing the trial of the war criminals.
He said AL would foil all conspiracies of the vested quarter and assist the government to build a prosperous country free from poverty, hunger, unemployment and corruption. He also thanked the present government for declaring a mass-people welfare oriented budget for next fiscal year.
Leaders and workers of SL Sylhet district units and its different front organizations also observed the historic day in a befitting manner in their respective party offices.
Terming the six-point demand as the charter of Bangalees’ emancipation and the ‘Magna Carta’, Awami League leaders in the discussion meeting said history bore testimony to the fact that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had rightly announced the six-point demand that suited the demand of the time.
They said many politicians were of the opinions that Bangabandhu would not be able to retain his political entity following his announcement of the six-point demand but the reality was that Sheikh Mujib emerged as Bangabandhu, father of the nation and the greatest Bangalee of all time for the six-point demand concept.
Local dailies published some special articles highlighting the life and contributions of the great leader of the country’s Independence who spearheaded the six-points demand.
