Independence Day of Bangladesh

Independence Day, March 26, is the day that Bangladesh was declared to be an independent, sovereign nation. This marked the beginning of Bangladesh as a nation, at the onset of the Liberation War of 1971. It was declared after the brutal March 25 crackdown of the occupying Pakistani army on innocent civilians. 

On the other hand, Victory Day, December 16, is the day the Pakistani military surrendered before the Indian Army and the Mukti Bahini of Bangladesh won the Liberation War.

The two days are different because while we declared independence on March 26, we were still under West Pakistani occupation, and would have to fight them off to free ourselves. On December 16, the country had successfully done so and gained liberation from West Pakistan, and were free to rule our own sovereign state. 

Both days are equally important in Bangladesh's history. To understand why, we need to take a closer look at history.
