Explanation:

21st February is indeed declared to be the International Mother Language Day by UNESCO (not UNICEF).

The demand for Bangla to be recognized as one of the national languages was indeed raised in the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan. During the early years of Pakistan's formation, there were movements and protests in East Pakistan (present-day Bangladesh) to recognize Bangla as one of the national languages alongside Urdu. The Language Movement, which began in 1948, culminated in the recognition of Bangla as a national language in 1956.
