The Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) on the instructions of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has erased Pakistan’s name from all the border pillars that were installed after the Partition in 1947.

This comes 48 years after the Bangladesh liberation of 1971.

The task was completed by using the BGB fund.

“Now all Bangladeshi border pillars have been renamed BANGLADESH/BD instead of PAKISTAN/PAK,” said a BGB media release.

Over 8,000 border pillars were installed with the words Ind/Pak-India-Pakistan after the 1947 India-Pakistan separation.

The pillars were erected in the border areas of Satkhira, Jessore, Chuadanga, Kushtia, Rajshahi, Chapainawabganj, Naogaon, Mymensingh, Jamalpur, Sunamganj, Sylhet, Brahmanbaria, Comilla and Chittagong.
