Answer: The 16th of December is the ‘Victory Day’ of Bangladesh because Bangladesh has become independent on this day. I celebrate this day every year with great pleasure and joy. I give flower in the Shaheed Minar. On that day, we remember those heroic souls of the soil at the cost of whose blood victory has been achieved. On this day I feel great sympathy and sorrow for the martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the war. Their strength and courage inspired me. The Pakistani forces killed thousands of innocent people, tortured innumerable women, killed many intellectuals of the country. After nine months of fighting, we have achieved the golden sun of independence from the barbarous Pakistanis. The Victory Day symbolizes the triumph of justice over tyranny. The sacrifice made by the martyrs will act as a perennial source of inspiration for me to work for the country.
