Muscat: Bangladesh schools in Oman sought to help create a new world record by singing the national anthem of the country along with thousands of students, teachers, embassy officials and other community members. 

The singing was part of activities to celebrate the 43rd Anniversary of the Independence and National Day of the country. 

In Bangladesh, the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, in association with the Armed Forces, arranged for the performance of the National Anthem of Bangladesh by millions at the National Parade Square in the nation's capital of Dhaka. 

People from all walks of life gathered at the square and sang the national anthem together, aiming to inspire the population, especially the youths, and also to add the name of Bangladesh into the Guinness Book of World Records. 

As per the directive of the Bangladesh government, the Bangladesh School Muscat and Bangladesh Embassy in the Sultanate of Oman jointly organised the singing of the national anthem at Bangladesh schools in Muscat, Sohar, Jalan, Saham and Sinaw. 

The largest participation took place on the playground of Bangladesh School Muscat, where 1,300 students, 200 teachers and 200 other staff members belonging to the Bangladeshi expatriate community sang the national anthem at 9:00am, along with the entire Bangladesh and expatriate communities throughout the world. More than 1,000 students, teachers, staff and expatriates also took part in a similar programme in the branch schools throughout Oman.

Ambassador of the People's Republic of Bangladesh, His Excellency Sheikh Sekander Ali and members of the Ad hoc Committee, also joined the programme with embassy officials and notable community members.
