February 21st, Mother Language Day
Mother Language Day is celebrated on February 21st of each year.
UNESCO's General Conference established this special day in November 1999 at the suggestion of the country of Bangladesh. The day of February 21st was chosen specifically due to the death of five students who advocated the Bangla language become an official language in Pakistan, the eastern part later became Pakistan.
Over the past three centuries, languages have been dying and disappearing at frightening speed. There are 6000 languages in the world now, but 96% of existing languages are understood by only 4% of the world's population. Today about half of the 6000, languages spoken in the world are under the threat of extinction. The decision to support the languages facing extinction is an important step on behalf of UNESCO that will contribute to equality and justice in this world.
