Write a paragraph on “The Central Shaheed Minar”
The Central Shaheed Minar is a very sacred establishment for the Bengali nation. It was built to recall the supreme sacrifice of the language martyrs who boldly laid down their valuable lives for the cause of establishing our dearest mother tongue as the state language of the then Pakistan. It was built adjacent to the main gate of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital. The barbarous Pakistani police fired on the unarmed processionists here. It signifies the heartiest love and honour for our mother tongue. It is really a unique example in the whole world that the heroic sons of this sacred land sacrificed their valuable lives for the cause of our mother tongue. The Central Shaheed Minar, the first ever built Shaheed Minar in our land, symbolizes the national unity and Bangalee identity. Late architect Hamidur Rahman gave proper shape to the concept and design of the Shaheed Minar by combining all the aspirations of the Bengali identity and nationalism. The vertical lines of the Minar provide the manifestations of inner strength. Similarly, the four columns on both sides of the central structure reflect the balance and harmony of a united stand. The Central Shaheed Minar’is a matter of our nation’s pride. The heroic sons laid down their lives for the cause of our mother tongue and the Shaheed Minar was built in remembrance of their unique sacrifice. So, its status is above all other things.
