Bangladesh to honour 1668 martyrs of the Indian Army

Bangladesh to honour 1668 martyrs of the Indian Army
30 November 2016 Current Affairs: Bangladesh will honour the families of 1668 martyrs of the Indian Army who fought in the 1971 India-Pakistan war, which resulted in the liberation of East Pakistan (Bangladesh), on the event’s 45th anniversary.

According to the Liberation War Affairs Minister A K M Mozammel Huq, families of all the martyred soldiers will receive Rs 5 lakh as a mark of respect. The amount would be handed over by the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina during her visit to Delhi between 18- 20 December 2016. 

The amount in question would be given in Indian currency. 

According to Huq, Demonetization would not pose a problem to them. First Bangladeshi Taka would be converted into dollars and handed over to the Bangladesh High Commission in Delhi, who in turn will convert it into Indian currency and hand it over to the Prime Minister upon her arrival. 

Aside from the money, the soldiers’ families will also be receiving a letter of gratitude from the Prime Minister in Bengali, English and Hindi and a plaque. 

A book on the contribution of the martyrs will also be published.





Besides this, Bangladesh will also be constructing a war memorial in the district of Brahmanbaria to pay homage to all the Indian soldiers who gave up their lives for the cause of Bangladesh’s independence. 

1971 War : The India-Pakistan war was ignited due to widespread genocide launched by West Pakistan army against the minority Hindu population and Bengalis living in East Pakistan, which led many to flee the country and take refuge in India. 

Several Indian state governments including those of West Bengal, Bihar, Meghalaya and Tripura set up refugee camps along the border to provide safe shelter to the fleeing refugees. 

After repeated failures in getting a response from the international community on the matter, the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared India’s firm support towards Bangladesh’s independence struggle and decided to go on war against Pakistan. 

Bangladesh was finally liberated on 16 December 1971.
