Don’t question it; it is a very big thing in Bangladesh and Independence day from Pakistan is celebrated with some gusto.  Forget the colonial hand over, Independence day is the biggy and you would be hard pressed

to find a single Bangladeshi who doesn’t mark the occasion. It is a bit of a war cry too as memories are still bitter as can be gleaned from the rhetoric delivered by head of state and dignitaries.

In Bahrain, the Bangladesh Ambassador H.E. Major General KM Mominur Rahman is definitely very passionate when it comes to Independence. So local dignitaries and guests, many from the large Bangladesh community in Bahrain were invited to the Diplomat Radisson Blue Hotel for dinner.  A jolly night as can been seen to be had.
