Historic 6-Point Day today

7 June, 2019 12:37:24

On June 7 in 1966, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman launched a massive movement against the misrule of the Pakistanis on the basis of the 6-point demand — the Magna Carta of the Bangalees’ demand for autonomy in the then east Pakistan.

On the day, 11 people including Manu Mian, Shafique and Shamsul Haque were gunned down by police and paramilitary forces in Dhaka and Narayanganj during a hartal called for the release of Bangabandhu and other leaders detained for launching the 6-Point Movement against the oppressive and tyrannical regime of Pakistan.

Bangabandhu announced the six-point political and economic programme in Lahore on February 5 in 1966, aiming at attaining greater autonomy for the then East Pakistan in the backdrop of exploitation and discrimination by the then Pakistani rulers.
