Bangladesh Press Council Day will be observed in the country today (Wednesday) in a befitting manner.
Bangladesh Press Council was established on February 14, 1974 by enacting the Bangladesh Press Council Act by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to protect press freedom and improve its standard.
On the eve of the day, President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages greeting all concerned, including the press council and journalists, and wishing all programmes of the day a success.
In his message, the President said, "Bangabandhu had a friendly relationship with journalists throughout his life. He could realize, with his humane approach, the issues like problems, prospects and development of this profession".
Realizing that journalist society would be an associate force of democracy, Bangabandhu enacted the Bangladesh Press Council Act in 1974 to protect freedom of press and its development, Hamid added.
