Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said that in this era of technology, the true history of the country, independence, the sacrifice of the father of the nation, and the bloodshed of millions of martyrs, there is no possibility to push young generations into the regime of darkness.

"In the age of technology, it will not be possible to push them (the new generation) into darkness," she said while addressing a program celebrating the historic March 7 speech of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The event was organized by the Ministry of Culture at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC). The Prime Minister attended the virtual ceremony from her official residence Ganobhaban.

She said that no one can destroy the independence of the country and the ideology of Bangabandhu.

The Prime Minister said, "This world is very open to the new generation, so they will not be confused."

She mentioned that for 21 years after the assassination of Bangabandhu, a selfish group has misled the young generation.

"I firmly believe that this cannot be done now," she said.

The Prime Minister said Bangabandhu's historic speech on March 7 will inspire the Bengali nation for decades to come.

She recalled that the March 7 speech was banned after the assassination of the Father of the Nation.

She said it was unfortunate that speeches that inspired the Bengali nation to achieve independence were banned.

In this context, Sheikh Hasina said, many leaders and activists of Awami League and Chhatra League have been tortured and killed for playing this speech.

The Prime Minister said anti-independence forces have distorted the history of independence during the long 21 years of rule.

She said, "There has been an attempt to erase the spirit of the liberation war, the sacrifice of millions of martyrs, and people's struggle from history. Now it is clear that no one can erase the truth."

State Minister for Culture KM Khalid presided over the ceremony, Liberation War Affairs Minister Mozammel Haque, and Education Minister Dipu Moni spoke on the occasion as the special guests.
