West Bengal (June 19,2023) : A group of historians have questioned the need to celebrate West Bengal Day, which is observed on May 20 every year. The historians argue that the day marks the partition of Bengal, which was a traumatic event for the people of the state. The historians say that the day should be used to remember the victims of partition and to work towards a united Bengal. They also say that the day should be used to promote communal harmony and tolerance.

The West Bengal government has defended the celebrations, saying that they are a way to remember the sacrifices made by the people of the state. The government also says that the celebrations are a way to promote Bengali culture and heritage.

The controversy over West Bengal Day is likely to continue. The historians have vowed to continue their campaign to have the day abolished. The government, on the other hand, has said that it will not give in to the demands of the historians.

The controversy over West Bengal Day is a reminder of the deep divisions that still exist in the state. The historians are right to point out that the day marks a traumatic event in the history of Bengal. The government, however, is also right to say that the day should be used to promote Bengali culture and heritage. The challenge for the people of Bengal is to find a way to celebrate their culture and heritage without forgetting the victims of partition.
