Happy Independence Day Bangladesh!! Yesterday, March 26th, was a national holiday in Bangladesh because on that day was the country's Declaration of Independence from Pakistan 46 years ago, in 1971, by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Our Bangladeshi CCI friends organized a small party, explained to us the history behind it, and screened a documentary related with the genocide.
Yesterday was a day to remember the death of millions of freedom fighters who died in this liberation war. Yesterday was not a day to blame others or to spread hate, yesterday was a day of reconciliation and understanding. We look at the past so that we don't repeat the same mistakes, but we learned already how to forgive and love. My Pakistani friends always say that humanity is their religion, after all.
