The expatriate Bangladeshis in Sydney have initiated a fund raising programme for making a monument in Australia on the Language Movement of 1952.
In a fund raising programme held at Red Rose Hall in Rockvale on Sunday, the organisers collected Australian dollar 35,000 for the monument to be installed in Sydney to let the world know about the glorious movement of the Bengali nation, said a press release sent by Australia-Bangladesh Press and Media Club.
It was second such arrangement for collecting fund, added the release.
Bangladesh high commissioner to Australia Sufiur Rahman, the High Commission’s council general Kamruzzaman, among others, were present at the programme.
Canterbury Bankstown’s elected councilors Nazmul Huda and Shahe Zaman Titu, and three other social activists named Abdullah Al Noman Shamim, Munir Hossain and Lincon Shafiullah initiated the project, the release reads.
