Bangladesh High Commissioner to the UK Saida Muna Tasneem has called upon the new generation of British Bangladeshi diaspora to carry out research on the Bangladesh Constitution of 1972 presented by the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“British-Bangladeshis can use the Bangabandhu Library at the Bangladesh mission in London which has many books needed for research on the subject,” she said.
The high commissioner made the remarks at special discussion titled ‘Bangladesh High Commission’s Commitment to the Constitution: Service to the Diaspora’ held at the Bangladesh High Commission in London on Saturday, marking the ‘National Constitution Day 2023’, according to a press release of Bangladesh mission in London received here yesterday.
