Awami League Celebrates 75th Anniversary: Honoring a Legacy of Independence and Secularism

Dhaka, Bangladesh - The Awami League (AL), Bangladesh's ruling party that played a pivotal role in achieving the country's independence through the 1971 Liberation War, will celebrate its 75th founding anniversary on Sunday, June 23.

The party was founded on June 23, 1949, originally named the Awami Muslim League, at the Rose Garden in Old Dhaka. It later transformed into the Bangladesh Awami League to embrace a secular identity.

As one of the country's oldest and largest political parties, the Awami League has been instrumental in building a non-communal Bangladesh, a vision first championed by the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. At the time of its inception, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was in jail but was appointed as the joint general secretary of the party.

To commemorate this significant milestone, the Awami League has organized an array of events. Party General Secretary Obaidul Quader announced a three-day program to mark the 75th anniversary.

The celebrations will begin with Prime Minister and Party President Sheikh Hasina inaugurating the platinum jubilee in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban. The day's events include a discussion meeting at Suhrawardy Udyan at 3 PM, followed by a cultural program. Additional cultural activities will take place at Rabindra Sarobar, and there will be a boat race and cycle rally at Hatirjheel in the capital.

The Awami League has also extended invitations to all registered political parties to join the anniversary celebrations. The founding anniversary will be celebrated at the union and ward levels across the country, ensuring that the legacy of the Awami League is honored nationwide.
