It stands 150 feet tall. It stands for an achievement which is immeasurable. Its foundation was laid on the first anniversary of the victory day. There is actually a plan to build a huge complex in several phases. It is decided to cover in an area of 126 acres. This plan includes a mosque, a library and a museum. It reminds us all that the weapons of freedom need not be very big. The will of people prevails, for man is born to be free. Thus our martyrs have left behind them a great teaching for us that we should possess an indomitable spirit to stand upright in honor and dignity among the nations of the world.
