Prime Minister’s message on the occasion of 99th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu and National Children’s Day

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given the following message on the occasion of the 99th birth anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and National Children’s Day :

“I pay my deep homage to the greatest Bangalee of all time, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on his 99th birth anniversary. The day is our National Children’s Day. I convey my best wishes to the countrymen, especially the children, on this auspicious occasion. This year the theme of Bangabandhu’s birth anniversary and National Children’s Day is ‘Bangabandhu’s birthday, rinse life of the children with colour.’

We have relentlessly been working to make children’s lives colorful. The main aim of the Father of the Nation of his long political career was to liberate the Bangalee nation and bring economic freedom. The language movement of 1948, the election of United Front in 1954, 6-point movement of 1966, mass upsurge in 1969, general elections in 1970 and the independence war of 1971 were carried out under the undisputed leadership of the Father of the Nation. Under his leadership, we achieved an independent sovereign Bangladesh.

Bangabandhu had a limitless love for the children. He added special provisions in the constitution with regard to the responsibilities and duties of the state to the welfare of children. In 1974, he enacted children laws and made primary education compulsory.

The present government is undertaking and implementing various initiatives for the welfare of the children. ‘World Children’s Day’ and ‘Children’s Rights Week’ are being observed at national level to protect child rights and to ensure their safety. National Child Policy-20l1, Child Act-2013, Child Marriage Prevention Act-2017 have been enacted. National children’s day, child marriage prevention day, street-children rehabilitation and various activities for children with special needs have been undertaken.

We are pledge-bound to make our beloved motherland as a safe habitat for the children. Various programs related to safety, food and nutrition, shelter and protection for children and basic needs like education and health are being implemented along with sustainable development under the social safety net program to prevent child labour. Free textbooks are being provided to the students at the beginning of the year, “Almost 100 percent children are now going to school. We have published books based on life and work of the Father of the Nation and added original history of liberation war in the textbooks for the children. Children are being involved in art, literature, culture and various branches of sports in order to infuse patriotism, build personality and develop their confidence.

Our goal is to create a better future by ensuring equal rights for all children. The role of parents, family and society is immense in achieving this goal. On this day, I urge everyone to stop violence against children and child abuse.

Let us dedicate our present to the welfare of the children. Let us build Golden Bangladesh as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

I wish every success of all programs undertaken for the celebration of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s 99th Birth Anniversary and National Children’s Day, 2019.
