The individuals who were available at Dhaka’s Race Course Maidan or heard Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheik Mujibur Rahman’s memorable March 7 discourse can’t overlook the red hot voice, tinged with expressions of disappointment against the Pakistani junta, and the careful expressions of venturing towards the battle for an autonomous Bangladesh.
Bangabandhu made it understood in his discourse that he needed a tranquil answer for an emergency made by General Yayha Khan and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, who was later hanged by his own military rulers. The best Bengalee of all occasions gave the opportunity to the Pakistani rulers to stay away from any contention, particularly savagery, as it implied slaughter. He realized his kin were prepared alongside him to forfeit their lives for their law based rights.
A huge piece of his discourse point by point his endeavors to persuade the Pakistanis to deflect any unjust move to help end the emergency calmly and with no gore. That talked about Bangabandhu’s extraordinary stresses over his kin who were out on the avenues exhibiting for their law based rights and that if harmony fizzled, blood would stream.
By this he had built up himself as a man of harmony, protector of human rights and one who esteemed equitable practices.
He broadcasted true freedom right now guided the country towards an inevitable triumph and shed light on his character— — a character that ought to be a model for all people.
“The battle this time is the battle for liberation, The battle this time is the battle for Independence,” Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheik Mujibur Rahman roared during his blending 19-minute discourse to the opportunity looking for Bengalees and the world everywhere on 07 March 1971, at the most gigantic convention at any point held in Dhaka’s present Suhrawardy Udyan park.
This alarmed Bengalees to the way that a contention was unavoidable and along these lines they should find a way to battle or to spare themselves. Bangabandhu was prepared to forfeit his own life and remained at his Dhanmondi Road-32 living arrangement, yet spared numerous lives with this message.
Following the discourse, numerous individuals had moved to security or accepting careful steps beyond what many would consider possible. Individuals put away dry nourishment, candles, drugs and water. Many brushed their rusting weapons and kept them prepared for use. Those living in Bihari-larger part regions had moved on the off chance that they could on the grounds that this Urdu-talking bunch from India’s Bihar state were at that point undermining the Bengalee individuals.
“Transform each house into a post, oppose the adversary with all that you have … Having aced the exercise of penance, we will give more blood. Inshallah, we will free the individuals of this land,” said Bangabandhu in his discourse.
“I have preceded you today with crushing sadness” and afterward at one point he stated: “As I let them know (Pakistanis) prior, Mujibur Rahman will not stroll to the Assembly exchanging upon the new stains of his siblings’ blood! Do you, my siblings, have total confidence in me… .? … . Let me reveal to you that Prime Ministership isn’t what I look for. What I need is equity, the privileges of the individuals of this land.
They enticed me with the Prime Ministership, yet they neglected to get me over. Nor did they prevail with regards to draping me on the hangman’s tree, for you protected me with your blood from the supposed (Agartala) connivance case. That day, directly here at this race course maidan, I had swore to you that I would pay for this blood obligation with my own blood. Do you recollect? I am prepared today to satisfy that guarantee!”
The man of harmony and equity clarified that he kept all choices open to locate a serene end to the emergency and if blood was required to accomplish the privileges of the individuals, he would initially forfeit his life. For a man who has been in and out of prison for an amazing duration realizing demise approached ordinarily, yet by and by he was offering his own blood as harmony was not the decision of the Pakistanis.
Bangabandhu further clarified “As you most likely are aware, I have been in contact with President Yahya Khan. As the pioneer of the lion’s share party in the National Assembly, I requested that he set February 15 as the day for its opening meeting. He didn’t acquiesce to the solicitation I made as the pioneer of the lion’s share party. Rather, he obliged the defer mentioned by the minority head, Mr Bhutto, and reported that the Assembly would be gathered on the third of March.
We acknowledged that, consented to join the considerations. I even went to the degree of saying that we, regardless of our larger part, would at present tune in to any solid thoughts from the minority, regardless of whether it were a solitary voice. I subscribed to the help of anything to support the reclamation of a protected government. There was a prompt objection against this move by the individuals. I required a hartal as a tranquil type of dissent and the majority rampaged accordingly. Also, what did we get as a reaction?”
The Friend of Bengal like a genuine democrat clarified the entire circumstance as though requesting the authorization of Bengalees that if necessary, the last battle must be battled regardless of whether it implied carnage. No other pioneer, on record at any rate, on the planet has ever indicated such charitableness in looking for consent for his activities for the individuals who love him just as casted a ballot him to make him the larger part pioneers of the then Pakistan.
A furious Bangabadhu then told the super convention “He (Yayha) turned his firearms on my defenseless individuals, a people without any arms to protect themselves …. it is my own kin who are being terminated upon today. Before, as well, each time we the numerically bigger section of Pakistan’s populace attempted to declare our privileges and control our fate, they contrived against us and jumped upon us. The halt was made by Bhutto, yet the Bengalees are the ones confronting the shots! We face their weapons, yet it’s our shortcoming. We are the ones being bit by their shots it’s as yet our flaw!”
To the Pakistanis a last intrigue: “I state to them once more, you are my siblings, return now to the military enclosure where you have a place with and nobody will bear any antagonistic vibe toward you. Just don’t endeavor to point additional slugs at our souls: It won’t do any great! … .. What’s more, the 7,000,000 individuals of this land won’t be cowed somewhere around you or acknowledge concealment any more. The Bengalee individuals have figured out how amazing a reason and you won’t have the option to bring them under your burden of concealment!
Bangabandhu then gave his most genuine message to the group: “Be prepared with whatever you have. Transform each home into a fortification.” That clarified that carnage was inescapable except if a wonder could welcome some rational soundness with respect to the Pakistani rulers. On the off chance that we can calmly settle our disparities there is despite everything trust that we can coincide as siblings. Something else, there is no expectation. On the off chance that you pick the other way, we may never encounter each other again. For the present, I have only one thing to ask of you: Give up any musings of oppressing this nation under military standard once more!”
At that point at long last, the man of harmony, expressed the words that for all intents and purposes brought forth another country called Bangladesh. “Since we have given blood, we will give more. In any case, Insha’Allah, we will free the individuals of this land! The battle this time is for liberation! The battle this time is for freedom!”
