When Hamidur rahman was assigned to make the design, he was full of enthusiasm focusing on the language movement as the central concept. He wanted to find a new expressing to convey the aspiration of the people. He experimented with basic horizontal and vertical line of his design provided the manifestations of inner strength. The four columns on both sides of the central structure reflect the balance and harmony of a united stand.
The original design had included stained glass with hundreds of eyes through the sunlight could pass. The marble floor was to reflect the moving shadows of the column in an unending process of revolt from dawn to dusk. In the basement of the minar he had designed a grand fresco work of 1500 square feet, depicting the language movement . This was to be his masterpiece, again reflecting the theme of geometry horizontal and vertical motif of unity and strength.
Rahman was fully conscious of the tropical damp of Bangladesh and therefore worked out such materials for the minar that withstand the climate. He ensured that the columns be made of such mixture of iron and cement as to stand for centures. Today the shaheed minar is a symbol of freedom, strength and unity.
