The High Court today issued a rule asking the government to explain in two weeks why it should not be ordered to demarcate the exact spot in Suhrawardy Udyan where Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman gave the landmark speech on March 7, 1971 stating the independence of Bangladesh.

As a rule, the court also asked the respondents to show the reasons why they should not be ordered to preserve the place establishing a statue that looks like the original stage from which the speech was given by Bangabandhu and commemorate the importance of philosophy in the historic March 7 speech.

The secretaries of the ministries of liberation war, cultural affairs and information, the director general of the department of archeology and the mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation were made respondents.

The High Court bench of Justices Naima Haider and Zafar Ahmed proposed the rule following a written petition filed by four architects, including Mohammad Abduall Al Masum, asking for the necessary guidelines to preserve the historic site of Suhrawardy Udyan.

On March 7, 1971, the father of the Bangabandhu nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in his fiery speech at Maidan Racecourse (now Suhrawardy Udyan) called on the freedom-loving Bangalis to wage a decisive struggle against the Pakistani rulers.
