The Language Movement began its march at this gate on Feb 21, 1952, calling for the recognition of Bangla as the state language. The gate is now an entrance to Dhaka Medical College Hospital, but a sign proclaiming its historic importance is the only attempt that has been made to preserve the location. Photo: Abdullah Al Momin
