BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today said their party considers Bangabandhu's March 7 speech a part of Liberation War history and they do not want to undermine him.
"We won't just observe March 7, but also March 2, March 3…these incidents are part of the history of the Liberation War. How can we deny history?" he said.

He made the remarks while exchanging views with journalists at a city hotel arranged by the party's media committee on the celebration of the golden jubilee of independence.
