The parliament on Thursday passed a proposal to include Birangonas in the list of freedom fighters.
Monirul Islam, lawmaker from Jessore-2 constituency placed the proposal before the Parliament which passed it through voice votes. But the House rejected a proposal of another lawmaker to rename Birangona as Birkonya.
Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq told the House that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman gave the name 'Birangona' so it would not be wise to change the name.
