This annual celebration in Bangladesh is to commemorate the 1975 uprising by both civilians and soldiers in a demonstration of solidarity which effectively brought to an end the three day coup carried out by General Khaled Mosharraf.
The uprising was led by Colonel Abu Taher and was instrumental in helping to put the founder of Bangladesh National Party, General Ziaur Rahman, in power. November 7 is a national holiday in Bangladesh.
