After the breakthrough of 1947, the then leader Jinnah bonded Pakistan with the formula of language but Bengalis had love for Bengali language instead of Urdu. This movement done for Bengali language slowly became bigger and powerful due to which the government of 1952 started Curfew immediately. Early morning in Feb21, the students of Dhaka International started a movement against the language related statement in section 144. The slogan of the rally was; “Rastrobhasa Bangala Chahi” meaning we need Bengali as our national language. But during the oppression of police hundreds of language lover students died. Today they are called language soldiers. And in 1952 Language day was celebrated to remember the sacrifice of those hundreds of students.
