The Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is the architect of independent Bangladesh. He is recognized as the greatest Bengali of the past thousand years. We owe to his charismatic leadership for making us a free nation. This great leader was born on 17 March 1920 at Tungipara in Gopalgonj. His father’s name was Sheikh Lutfur Rahman and his mother’s name was Sayera Khatun. He passed the matriculation examination from the Gopalgonj mission school. He obtained a B.A. degree in 1947 from the Calcutta Islamic college. Afterwards, he joined the politics and did his best for the Bengali nation to make them free from the misrule and oppression of the Pak rulers. His historic address on the 7th March 1971, at a mammoth gathering at the Race Course, marked a turning point in the history of the Bengali nation. In his address he made a clarion call, saying: “Build forts in each homestead. You must resist the Pakistani enemy with whatever you have in hand. Remember; since we have already had to shed blood, we’ll have to shed a lot more of 11; by the Grace of God, however, we’ll be able to liberate the people of this land. The struggle this time is a struggle for a freedom-the struggle this time is a struggle for emancipation. He was arrested on 25th March 1971 and was taken to Pakistan. He was sent back home after liberation. He was the Prime Minister and sometimes the President of Bangladesh. But unfortunately, he was assassinated by some misguided army officers on 15th August 1975, along with most of his family members except for his two daughters. It is considered a great loss for the nation. Nothing can compensate for the loss. He was engraved at Tungipara.
