Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday expressed a desire to build fighter jets in Bangladesh to protect its sovereignty.

"We're building the Air Force to make it competitive, and we have a desire to build fighter jets in Bangladesh. We're taking preparations to protect our air border with our own [strength]," she said.

The Prime Minister said this while handing over the National Standard to 11 Squadron and 21 Squadron of Bangladesh Air Force.

The programme was held at Air Base Birsreshtha Matiur Rahman in Jashore and the Prime Minister joined it virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.

Sheikh Hasina said the government has taken steps to protect the country's sovereignty and take the country some steps ahead in defending it. "I believe we'll be able to get success in this regard, Inshallah."

The Prime Minister mentioned about the 'Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Aviation and Aerospace University' and aeronautical centre where the research works would be done effectively.

Hasina said protecting the dignity of the national flag is the sacred duty of all the armed forces personnel. "We attained the national flag in lieu of the blood of millions of martyrs. This flag is the symbol of our independence, honour and dignity. It's the sacred duty of all members of the armed forces to protect the dignity of the flag."

The Prime Minister said she thinks that the members of the armed forces will remain ready always to make any sacrifice for protecting the dignity of the flag, the country's independence, sovereignty and while performing duties in the international arena in peacekeeping missions in the UN so that the dignity of Bangladesh could be increased. "You'll perform your duties keeping eyes on that."

Recalling the efforts of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to build the Air Force after the independence of the country, she said the Father of the Nation in 1974 formulated Defence Policy for Bangladesh.

"Following those footsteps, we've formulated Forces Goal 2030 to make our armed forces a time-befitting and modern one, and we've started implementing that," she said.

Hasina also briefly described the induction of various modern and technology-based equipment in the Air Force.

As the country is celebrating Mujib Borsha, she said, the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation, the government has taken massive programmes for the overall development of the country and implementing those to change the fate of the general people including those who are living in the rural areas.

"We'll celebrate the Golden Jubilee of our Independence, let's promise on the eve of that to make ourselves patriot and fearless," she said.

With the united efforts of all, she said, Bangladesh will be built as a developed and prosperous 'Golden Bengal' to materialise the dream of the Father of the Nation.

Air Chief Marshal Masihuzzaman Serniabat, on behalf of the Prime Minister, handed over the national flags to 11 Squadron and 21 Squadron of Bangladesh Air Force.

Bangladesh simply does not have the industrial or knowledge capacity to take on such a adventure. As usual Hasina seems to be spewing crap. More than likely BAF will procure LCA since the IAF chief is vising for a few days lol

Lets see how they compare to Burmas JF-17 who will shoot them out the sky like flys

Oh pls we can't even make needles for our sewing machine , how the heck can we make fighter jets lol ?

Now we can get something like the Gripen or J-10C to be manufactured in Bangladesh , it will help us get experience to eventually make something on our own. Jet engines however will be foreign sadly

Also I think a space rocket is more doable for Bangladesh unlike a fighter jet

No way we will buy the LCA , The chief knows for sure LCA is not worth it.

Your current army chief is part of a mafia and was a personal body guard of Hasina... you honestly expect your military to have a semblance of professionalism? I have been hearing of new fighter jets for the BAF for the last 20 years. Even your BD military forums have been spewing crap for over a few decades now. Yet nothing to show but upgraded F7s.

In reality your militarys capability is exagerated by Hasina as well as your economy. Compare the PAF VS BAF, compare Pakistans space program vs Bds space program, hell compare Islamabad/faisalabad/karachi/gwadar vs dhaka/chitagong/any city in BD. Lastly even go to the remotest area of pakistan which is x30 times your land mass and any remote area of BD and compare the infrastructure...you will notice the disparity... yet somehow you expect us to believe BD is ahead of PK economically in any sense.... what a joke :D

Does this mean building copies of foreign jets (like India does) or designing and building an indigenous jet?
LCA production in Bangladesh... May take another 30 years, by then Pakistan would have 200+ AZM/J31S and even 6th generation fighters :D

Inshallah. more muslim countries need to become self-reliant on making the heavy duty defence technology. so Bangladesh makes fighter jets one day then that will be good for the ummah in the long term.



all muslim countries struggle with this.
Screw your Nawaz chore and screw your Ummah... Pakistan first. Stay in Bahrain or KSA where your kind belong and leave our land free.
