On this blessed day, Consul General Mohammad Munirul Islam said: "Today, 26th of March, is the independence and National Day of Bangladesh. This year is the 100th anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mucibur Rahman, the architect of independent and sovereign Bangladesh. It also gained prominence due to the fact that it was his year of birth. The celebrations in Istanbul will not only provide an understanding of the glorious life and works of the great leader, but will also take Bangladesh-Turkey relations to a new level. I hope that on this Independence Day, which is very important for Bangladesh, the bonds of friendship between Turkey and Bangladesh based on historical, cultural and religious intimacy will expand and strengthen."
Turkish academics and media members who visited Bangladesh recently celebrated this important day of Bangladesh and the people of Bangladesh and expressed their loving feelings about Bangladesh and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

It is very meaningful for the birth guru to come across the same period and be commemorated together this year. For both developments, I extend my love to our dear friends and the people of Bangladesh. I want to say something you may not believe, but I know Mujibur Rahman from the 1970s. I was born in a city in the Black Sea region of Turkey. In those years, a very advanced elder would tell me about Mujibur Rahman, his philosophy of goodness. When I was a child I would listen to him with attention. I mean, I know Mujibur Rahman when I was a kid in the 1970s. I want to underline how important his philosophy of good for all is in the world today. At this point I wish that the philosophy of Mujibur Rahman and people who think like him would dominate the world.”

Bangladesh, which declared its independence by giving 3 million martyrs as a result of the great struggles, has reached today by giving many martyrs against imperialism. He was the head of state of the country from 1971 to 1972, when the country's ancestor, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, called the people of Bangladesh, was the country's ancestor or friend of the people. The people of Bangladesh, following Atatürk's “peace at home, peace in the World” direction, are now attracting attention as a people who have adapted to establish good relations with the whole world and to get along well with everyone. We can never forget the contributions he made to the Turkish people during the war of independence and he celebrates the independence of the people of Bangladesh, a friend and sister country. I sincerely wish him to live this holiday for many centuries. The people of Bangladesh, a friend and brother country, have sadly lost millions of people to reach this day, and I wish for mercy among our martyrs who have given their lives for the independence of their country. Long Live Bangladesh."
