Historic 6-Point Day observed in Ctg10 June 2022
Chattogram Bureau :
The historic 6-Point Day, marking the demand for autonomy for the then East Pakistan, now Bangladesh, is being observed in the port city as elsewhere in the country in a befitting manner. On June 7 in 1966, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman launched a massive movement against the misrule of the then Pakistanis on the basis of the 6-point demand, the Magna Carta of the Bengalis, demanding autonomy for the then East Pakistan.
Eleven people, including Manu Mian, Shafique and Shamsul Haque, were gunned down by the police and paramilitary EPR on June 7, 1966 in Dhaka and Narayanganj during a hartal called for the release of Bangabandhu and other leaders detained for launching the Six-Point Movement against the then barbaric ruling clique.
