On March 26, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting Bangladesh for a two-day trip. On the occasion of the 50th Independence anniversary of Bangladesh, PM Modi will pay homage to the nation’s founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Reportedly, PM Modi‘s trip will primarily focus on visiting Orakandi, the birthplace of Harichand Thakur. Thakur is the founder of the Hindu sect, Matua.

This will be PM Modi’s first-ever foreign visit since the outbreak of the Corovnavirus pandemic. The two prominent temples of the Matua community will be a crucial part of PM Modi’s tour. For those unversed, the Matuas are a very close-knit group from West Bengal. The community migrated from Bangladesh after and during the partition. The locals residing in Bangladesh are quite happy with the news of PM Modi’s visit.

PM Modi will be interacting with the people of the Matua community during his visit. The Matua community shrine and the Sati pith temple are among a couple of places that have been listed in the PM’s visit. He will be also seen at the Bangabandhu Memorial in Tungipara, where Bangladesh’s first leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is buried.

Also, there are plans of him paying a visit to Rabindra Kuthi Bari in Kushtia (one of Rabindranath Tagore’s homes) and the ancestral home of Bagha Jatin, a revolutionary leader during the British rule. As per the PM’s two-day schedule, on 26th March he will pay tribute to the martyrs of the country’s liberation war. Also, he will deliver a speech at the National Parade Ground as a guest of honour.

Along with Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina, PM Modi will also inaugurate the Bangabandhu-Bapu Digital Exhibition.
