Public works minister SM Rezaul Karim on Thursday said that the March 7 speech of Bangladesh’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was a global wonder.
Speaking at a discussion on the historic March 7 speech at the National Press Club, he said that the speech was delivered with a short-time preparation but it was a complete speech and a guideline for the nation.
Sampritee Bangladesh, a pro-Awami League organisation of professionals, organised the discussion.
Rezaul Karim said Sheikh Mujibur Rahman did not miss any issues in his speech.
‘The speech was not limited to the Liberation War only, rather, the speech was a guideline for Bengalis,’ he said.
Rezaul dubbed the March 7 speech as Magna Carta for Bengalis.
He said the speech was worthy of good research as every word of the speech has an inner significance.
The Bengalis will take directives from the speech in the years to come, he said.
‘The speech is a solution to every issue for us,’ he said.
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University former vice-chancellor Kamrul Hasan Khan stressed the need for inclusion of the text of the speech in school curriculum.
‘Many redundant issues are incorporated in the textbooks but the historic March 7 speech is missing,’ he said.
