About the celebration of Bangladesh’s great victory day and the significance of the liberation war and the various demands of the community, the speakers said at the meeting organized by Sunamganj Zila Welfare Association UK in London, the purpose with which Bangladesh became independent has not been implemented even in 52 years. We still cannot enjoy full freedom without a single map and a red and green flag.
Although the contribution of the UK diaspora in the war of liberation is the most, those diasporas are neglected today. Most of the speakers in the meeting protested and strongly condemned the overcharging of air fares. Expatriates are facing harassment all over the country. These need to be properly addressed.
