Staff Reporter: Four lawmakers, including three members of the House of Representatives (Congressman), have taken a commendable initiative for the celebration of Independence day of Bangladesh. On March 26, the decision of another proposal was passed on Tuesday (March 16th).
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York) submitted the resolution in the first session of the 117th Congress. The resolution has been referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Three democratic representatives Rashida Tlaib (Michigan), Jimmy Gomez (California), and Chair of House Committee on Foreign Affairs Gregory W. Meeks (New York) co-sponsored the resolution.
The House of Representatives, through the resolution, congratulated the people of Bangladesh on the 50th anniversary of their independence; hailed the courage of our valiant freedom fighters in the struggle for independence and democracy, and lauded the contributions of Bangladesh for hosting Rohingyas fleeing genocide in Myanmar.

The resolution mentioned that “on March 26, 1971, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared Bangladesh’s independence from West Pakistan.”
The Congress resolution cited Senator Edward Kennedy’s speech on February 14, 1972, at the University of Dhaka, where he said, “the struggle of the people of Bangladesh…evokes the greatest memories of our past.”
The resolution highlighted the history of Bangladesh’s long struggle for self-determination, culminating in the War of Independence in 1971. Earlier, in New York and New Jersey, there were two separate proposals for Kinghola of Bangladesh’s independence in Bangladesh.
