The History of Martyred Intellectuals Day

It honors the day in 1971 when the Pakistani Army killed a number of university professors, journalists, and other intellectuals during the Bangladesh Liberation War. The day is also known as Shaheed Buddhijibi Dibosh, or Martyred Intellectuals’ Day.

The origins of Martyred Intellectuals Day date back to 1971, when Bangladesh was fighting for independence from Pakistan. During the war, the Pakistani Army targeted and killed a number of university professors, journalists, and other intellectuals. These martyrs were viewed as a threat to the Pakistani Army because they were able to spread their knowledge and ideas to others.

On December 14th, 1971, the Pakistani Army entered into Dhaka University and murdered a group of intellectuals. This event sparked outrage among the people of Bangladesh and led to the formation of Martyred Intellectuals Day.

Since its inception, Martyred Intellectuals Day has been observed as a day of national mourning. Every year on this day, Bengalis across the world remember and honor those who sacrificed their lives for the cause of Bangladeshi independence.
