Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
The government has officially announced the commemoration of Mujib Borsho, which marks the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Father of the Nation. Born on March 17, 1920, in Gopalganj Mohokuma, he was the son of Sheikh Lutfur Rahman and Sayera Khatun. Even in his early years, Mujibur Rahman displayed remarkable intelligence. He received his primary and secondary education in Gopalganj before enrolling at Kolkata Islamic College, where he earned a B.A. degree in 1947.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman emerged as a charismatic leader, leading movements and uprisings against British rule in India. He then guided the Bengalis of East Pakistan in their struggle against the oppressive actions of the postcolonial Pakistani government. Eventually, his efforts culminated in the creation of an independent nation, Bangladesh, in 1971. He served as the head of the Awami League and became the first President of Bangladesh during the Bangladesh Liberation War. Subsequently, he assumed the role of Prime Minister in independent Bangladesh. Sheikh Mujib is affectionately referred to as Sheikh Mujib and is honored with the title of Bangabandhu, meaning "Friend of Bengal."
The government has declared Mujib Borsho as a year of tribute and respect to commemorate his 100th birth anniversary. This milestone will be celebrated with utmost reverence. The life and struggle of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will continue to inspire us to work tirelessly for the betterment of our country and its people.
