LANGUAGE MOVEMENT: CONSENSUS FOR CHANGE WAS BUILD

February 20, 2015:

Since 1947, West Pakistan’s central regime’s exclusive socio economic policies and inhumane indifference toward the East added new dimension by declaration of Urdu as State’s official language which resulted in the language movements milestone of 21 February, 1952.

The martyrs of language movement Salam, Barkat, Rafiq and Jabbar were representative of diverse constituents of student, entrepreneur, government officer and a farmer’s son who stood up for inclusive right for Bangla as State language.

Language movement was the indication of the direction Bangalee’s were evolving towards from their socio economic marginalised standing. From our foundation, consensus for change was build due to its inclusive nature in contrast to self serving policies evident in current day terrorism.
