The Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB), has paid respect to language movement heroes on the occasion of 'Shaheed Dibash' (Martyrs Day) and the International Mother Language Day.

President Nurul Islam Hasib and General Secretary Ashiqur Rahman Apu led DCAB in paying respect to language martyrs by placing wreaths at the Central Shaheed Minar on Wednesday morning.
Former DCAB General Secretary Mahfuz Mishu was also present, among others.

The day, February 21, is marked with the martyrdom of valiant sons of Bangladesh for establishing Bangla as the state language of the then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh).

The day is also being observed around the world as UNESCO recognised February 21 as the International Mother Language Day on November 17, 1999.

This year's theme of the day is "Multilingual education: a pillar of learning and intergenerational learning," is worthwhile".

DCAB is a 26-year-old organisation of reporters who cover foreign affairs of Bangladesh.
