Bangla Bhasha Procholon Ain, 1987

Bangla Bhasha Procholon Ain, 1987 is an Act by the Government of Bangladesh to implement and enforce the article 3 of the Constitution of Bangladesh. It is the 2nd Act of 1987. According to this act, all records and correspondences, proceedings in court and other legal actions must be written in the Bengali language in all courts, government or semi-government offices, autonomous institutions in Bangladesh; the act is considered "a revolutionary step taken by the State" to empower common people's language and to remove language barrier installed by the colonial British authority obstructing people's access to public services and justice. All subsequent laws by Jatiya Sangsad have been passed in Bengali since 1987. Notwithstanding the Act, English is used by the Supreme Court of Bangladesh resulting in popular discontent that the constitutional and democratic right of the people are getting violated despite the bloodshed by the martyrs of the Bengali language movement. In February every year, the Act is discussed in seminars and newspaper op-eds.

Bangladesh is a language-based nation state in the world. The Bengali language has developed over the course of more than 1,300 years and became one of the most prominent and diverse literary traditions in the world. Bengali was an official court language during the Sultanate of Bengal. Muslim rulers promoted the literary development in Bengali. Bengali literature, with its millennium-old literary history, has extensively developed since the Bengali Renaissance; the Bengali language movement from 1948 to 1956 demanding Bengali to be an official language of Pakistan fostered Bengali nationalism in East Bengal leading to the emergence of Bangladesh in 1971. Bengali was adopted as an official language of Pakistan along with Urdu in the article 214 when the first constitution of Pakistan was enacted on 29 February 1956. In 1999, UNESCO recognized 21 February as International Mother Language Day in recognition of the Bengali language movement. After the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, the third article of the Constitution of Bangladesh states Bengali to be the sole official language of the country.

With more than 98% of Bangladeshis fluent in Bengali as their first language, Bangladesh is the only monolingual country in South Asia and Bengali is regarded as the de facto national language of Bangladesh. On 8 March 1987, the Government of Bangladesh introduced the Bengali Language Implementation Act, 1987 to ensure mandatory use of Bengali in all domestic affairs except in the cases of foreign relations. On 12 March 1975, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman during his tenure as the President ordered in a government notification that all official activities in all courts and government offices must be performed in Bengali. Bengali is the 6th largest language by number of native speakers and 7th largest language by total number of speakers in the world; the Bengali language is the quintessential element of Bangladeshi identity and binds together a culturally diverse region. 3 After the introduction of this Act, all records and correspondences, proceedings in court and other legal actions must be written in Bengali in all courts, government or semi-government offices, autonomous institutions in Bangladesh.

3 If any one submits an appeal or petition at any offices mentioned in clause 3 in any language other than Bengali, the appeal or petition will be considered illegal and ineffective. 3 If any government staff or officer breaches this act, he or she will be accused of violating Bangladesh Civil Servant Order and Appeal Rules, necessary actions will be taken against him or her. 4 By notification in the official gazette, the government can create and impose necessary rules to enforce this Act. Following the act, all legislative and administrative activities are being done in Bengali since 1987. In all district courts, Bengali is the medium of communication both for speaking and writing petitions and verdicts. On 9 February 2011, Bangladesh Law Commission recommended that the Act be implemented in the Supreme Court as well to ensure easy access to justice for all. Bangladesh Law Commission stated that application of Bengali in all sphere of public life would be the proper way to observe Language Movement Day.

The chairman of Law Commission, Shah Alam wrote that due to the vested interest of certain quarter, Bengali was not being applied properly in the Supreme Court. Some suggested that "under section 137 of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 and section 558 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898 Bangladesh government may issue Order making use of Bengali mandatory in superior and subordinate judiciary." While Bengali is predominantly used in the official activities of Bangladesh Bank, Bengali has a marginal presence in the commercial private banks to the dismay of their respective clients as most of them find it difficult to navigate through their financial documents in English. In 2018, Bangladesh Bank instructed all banks to use Bengali "in loan approval letters for implementing the goal of the Bengali Language Introduction Act, 1987 and protecting the client’s interest." In February 2014, following a writ petition by an advocate named Yunus Ali Akand at the High Court, Justice Qazi Rezaul Haque issued a rule that Bengali should be used everywhere in Bangladesh, in all offices and media, following the act of 1987.

He further instructed that Bengali should be used on signboards, number plate of motor vehicles and all electronic media excluding foreign high embassies. Three months the Ministry of Public Administration ordered all city corporations, cantonment boards to implemen
