Also spoke during the event PKSF Board Members Ambassador Munshi Faiz Ahmad; Mr Arijit Chowdhury, Additional Secretary of Financial Institutions Division; Ms Nazneen Sultana, former Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank; and Ms Parveen Mahmud, Chairperson, UCEP Bangladesh.

Reminiscence by 20 Freedom Fighters of the Liberation War left in the audience in sheer awe and filled with a renewed sense of gratitude and reverence for these bravest sons of the soil as well the greatest architect of Bangladesh’s liberation – Sheikh Mujib. A book containing the recollection of these Freedom Fighters is being published by PKSF.
