Pakistan Day: Message


Today, we are celebrating the National Day of Pakistan to commemorate the Lahore Resolution of 1940, a landmark moment that solidified the vision of a separate homeland for Muslims in British India.

This dream resonated deeply with Muslims in Bengal, who played a pivotal role in the Pakistan Movement.

Leaders like Sher-e-Bangla A.K. Fazlul Haque championed the cause with unwavering commitment, mobilizing the Muslim population of Bengal and ensuring their voice was heard.

We also remember with respect the contributions of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, whose early political activism aligned with the aspirations of Pakistan, a united Muslim nation for the Muslims of India.

The ties between Pakistan and Bangladesh transcend geographical borders.


We share a rich cultural heritage, a common history, and the unbreakable bond of Islamic brotherhood. Since Bangladesh’s independence, our bilateral relations have grown steadily, encompassing trade, cultural exchanges, and regional and international cooperation.

We are committed to further strengthening these ties for the mutual benefit of our peoples.

Looking towards the future, there is immense potential to expand our partnership in various sectors, including trade and economic cooperation, people-to-people linkages etc.

We can learn from each other’s experiences and collaborate to address regional challenges. A close bilateral relationship between Pakistan and Bangladesh is in the interest of both the countries.

On this joyous occasion, let us reaffirm our commitment to fostering a relationship based on mutual respect, understanding, and shared prosperity. May the spirit of friendship and cooperation continue to guide our nations as we move forward together.
