At 7:45 pm on 26th March 1971, Major Zia broadcast the message which became historic in the struggle for independence:
'This is Shadhin Bangla Betar Kendra. I, Major Ziaur Rahman, at the direction of Bango Bondhu Mujibur Rahman, hereby declare that the independent People's Republic of Bangladesh has been established. At his direction, I have taken command as the temporary head of the republic. In the name of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, I call upon all Bengalis to rise against the attack by the west Pakistani Army. WE shall fight to the last to free our motherland. By the grace of Allah, victory is ours. Joy Bangla."
Right after the deliverance of this message our liberation war was ensued. Near about 3 million Bengalis were martyred during this confrontation. After 9 months of bloodshed war, on 16 December 1971, Bangladesh achieved its Independence.
My accolade goes to those who sacrificed their lives and those who supported this war for the emergance of this soveriegn nation: BANGLADESH.
