The Bangladeshi com­mu­nity cel­e­brated its 48th In­de­pen­dence and Na­tional Day at the Bangladesh Em­bassy in the cap­i­tal on Mon­day.

The func­tion started with hoist­ing of Bangladesh’s Na­tional Flag by the Bangladeshi Am­bas­sador to Bhutan, Jishnu Roy Choud­hury.

Dur­ing the event, em­bassy of­fi­cials read out the Bangladesh’s Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Hasina and Pres­i­dent, Md. Ab­dul Hamid’s ad­dress to the na­tion. The mes­sage high­lighted Bangladesh’s his­tory, econ­omy, achieve­ments, and chal­lenges.

The am­bas­sador was then pre­sented a Tashi Khad­dar, a cer­e­mo­nial scarf by the Zim­pon Wom Tashi on be­half of His Majesty The King. The day marks the coun­try’s dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence from Pak­istan on March 26, 1971.
