Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib is the great hero of history

August 15. For thousands of years this date will evoke the Bengali nation as painful, tragic and mournful.
On Friday, August 15, 1975, during Subeh Sadek, a despicable gang of the army under the leadership of Colonel Rashid-Farooq, President-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Bangladesh, brutally killed the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Shaheed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, unarmed at his residence in Dhanmondi. . If he is unarmed when attacked by religious eyes, he is considered a martyr.
At the same time, the assassins brutally killed Bangmata Begum Fazilatunnessa, wife of Shaheed Bangabandhu, their three sons Sheikh Kamal and Sultana Kamal, Sheikh Jamal and Rozi Jamal, 11-year-old child Sheikh Russell, Bangabandhu’s younger brother Sheikh Abu Nasser. They also killed a minister and a total of 19 relatives including one of the three editors of Bakshal.
The father of our nation Bangabandhu Shaheed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was brutally killed with his family, but the people of Bengal did not tremble on the streets and streets of Bengal in protest, no blood was shed and no tears were visible. But until the eve of Subeh Sadek on August 15, Bangabandhu’s sound has vibrated in the sky and air of Bengal where we are. And before dawn it disappeared with the wind.
President’s special assistant Bakshal Jubo League chief Tofail Ahmed, Bakshal’s three members of the ministerial rank of the editor Abdur Razzak, Prime Minister in charge of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Secretary General of Bakshal Captain Mansoor Ali, Minister of State for Defense Prof. Nurul Islam Chowdhury, Army Chief General K. M. Shafiullah Bir Uttam etc. failed to do any resistance, resistance and protest. But why? Will the next generation find the answer?
Bangabandhu Shaheed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman made his historic 6 in the meeting of the leaders of all parties held under the chairmanship of SM Afzal (Minister, East Pak 48-50/Acting President Pakistan Council Muslim League 64-66) in Lahore on February 5, 1966 to free the Bengali nation from the hands of Pakistanis. When the clause was raised, it was rejected in the face of strong opposition from the leaders of other parties present. With these 6 points, he started on the path of freedom.
On February 25, 1966, at the public meeting of Awami League held at Laldighir field in Chittagong, General Secretary of East Pakistan Awami League (1953-66) Bangabandhu Shaheed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman publicly explained his 6-point demand to the entire nation and called upon the nation to unite to implement it. In the council session of Awami League held in Dhaka on March 19, 1966, the 6-point demand proposal was unanimously accepted. At the conference, Bangabandhu Party President (19 March ’66 – 25 January ’75) Tajuddin Ahmad was elected General Secretary (19 March ’66 – May ’73). On March 20, he presented and explained 6-point demands in the president’s speech at a large public meeting of Awami League in Paltan. On March 21, Daily Ittefa carried a banner headline on the front page of “6-point advocates’ journey begins with greetings and blessings of insatiable audience”.
From March 20, 1966 to March 6, 1971, the father of the nation inspired the entire Bengali nation with the question of independence. On March 7th in a gathering of about one million people at the historic Race Course Maidan, declaring the independence of Bangladesh in a very loud and strong voice, on March 26th, he declared war against the barbaric Pak invaders. It is a historical fact that five and a half million people gave Bangabandhu a rubber stamp to determine the future of the Bengali nation as the leader of the absolute majority party by winning 160 out of 162 seats in the first general election held in Pakistan on December 7, 1970 to declare independence and war.
I am alive with the memory of the last meeting and talk with Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Shaheed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. On Saturday, June 14, 1975, the President’s motorcade stopped in front of the Sheikh Mujib Public Library in Gahirasth on the way to Betbunia. It is not a predetermined stop. We did not block the car. I was surprised when our president, our leader, the father of the nation came out of the car with a huge body. Salute and welcome him as the president of the library. The assembled library committee members, general members and the small crowd burst into cheers. How many books are there in the library and members and villagers come to the library etc. I said “I am praying for them” and got into the car – Bangabandhu left. I was in front of the library through a gate completely covered with white cloth. On the yellow banner was written in red ink ‘Khosh Amded’ Lo Salam President Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman – Sheikh Mujib Public Library After a few days from the President’s Office at 11:00 on August 7 at Ganobhaban, His Excellency the President was asked to receive a check of 5 (five) thousand rupees allocated by him in the name of the library. .
According to the letter, on Thursday, August 7, 1975, when he reached Ganobhaban at 11 o’clock, an official saw the letter and let him go to the President’s chamber. When he introduced himself by holding the feet of the great leader, he said in a voice filled with enthusiasm, ‘Don’t lose your courage. You didn’t give me a garland – you didn’t ask for anything. How does this library work? In reply, I run it entirely on my own money since 1972. I don’t accept donations from anyone, because begging is hard and greedy. I took a copy of the audit audited by MM Ahmad & Co., a renowned chartered accountant in Dhaka, and politely handed it over to him. He flipped through the pages. He said seriously, I gave this small amount for the library. Did you participate in the liberation war? Boli-na leader did not go to India but I was a fellow freedom fighter from the country. I worked as a special detective for Maulvi Syed Ahmad and Engineer Afsar Uddin Ahmad (MP 86-90). I used to keep the weapons of freedom fighters KC-2 in my house, I used to give shelter to freedom fighters. Participated in some operations with them. In late October I along with my friend Samsul Alam were taken from my home by the Pakistani Army and imprisoned in the cantonment and subjected to unspeakable torture. … I remind him that I met him at his residence on July 31, 1969, along with NSF leader Mabuburl Haque Dulon, one of the leaders of the 11-point movement, and the then Daksur GS Nazim Kamran Chowdhury. He advised us to leave student politics and join mainstream politics due to our age and taking that advice to heart, he retired from student politics on January 1, 1970 and became MA of Chittagong. Joined Awami League by taking membership from Aziz (General Secretary, District Awami League 1949-71/ MP- 1970-71). Let me mention that I was one of the 11 members of the Chittagong District All-Party Student Struggle Parishad of the 11-point movement. Meanwhile tea biscuit banana arrived. Seeing the eyes and face of this great leader, I understood that he was very happy. He advised to build a library movement in villages and towns. I saw an officer in navy uniform come to remind him about some program I will talk to next time. Khoda Hafez – I came back holding my feet and saluting. Since August 7, 1975, for 47 years, I have been sitting hoping that when will I meet this great leader again – he will talk about it.
On August 15, 1981, Awami League Jubo League Chhatra League was celebrating mourning day in Chittagong. On that day at 10 a.m. in Shaheed Minar, I was the chief guest and the office secretary of the Metropolitan Awami League Convening Committee and my daughter Jebu-un-Nisa Bakar Chowdhury Liza (wife of the Chief Health Officer of Chasik Dr. Salim Ahmad Chowdhury) spoke as the chief guest. My school life friend Noor Muhammad Chowdhury, a brave freedom fighter who was present in the audience, cried after hearing his speech which is still vivid in my memory and he often talks about that meeting. That afternoon, I was the main speaker at the Jubo League discussion meeting chaired by Naeemuddin Chowdhury, president of the Mahanagar Jubo League at the Rifle Club, and in the evening, I was the director and keynote speaker at the meeting of the Mahanagar Awami League at the same place, which appeared on the front page of Daily Azadi on August 16, 1981.
On August 15, 1975, I went to Sheikh Mujib Public Library in Gahira and came with a signed notice declaring the library closed for 7 days with the aim of observing the national flag at half-mast for 7 days of mourning. On that day, I was accompanied by vice-president Habibur Rahman, editor-Muhammad Ilyas, vice-president late heroic freedom fighter Muhammad Hasan Chowdhury, library editor late heroic freedom fighter Muhammad Iqbal Chowdhury and library janitor late Kabir Ahmad. I was the president of Sheikh Mujib Public Library till 1990.
While building a struggle in Chittagong against the killing of Bangabandhu, he was brutally killed by the army on August 17, 1977 in a conspiracy by a traitorous colleague. The wartime freedom fighter Shaheed Maulvi Syed Ahmad, the commander of the Mujib Army of the Chittagong city area, gave his first life for Bangabandhu, the main accused in the 17 accused in the Chittagong conspiracy case.
May Allah bless Father of Nation Bangabandhu Shaheed Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with his family.
