is a terse text drafted in poetic idiom introducing Bangabandhu to readers of varied ages, from adolescents to adults,
at the home and abroad.
It castes a glance at the decisive phases of the triumphant life of one of the bravest heroes of our time claiming dignity, equality, justice and freedom for all humans in the national and global context.


Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was born on March 17, 1920, in Tungipara, Gopalganj to Sheikh Lutfur Rahman and Saira Begum. He was the third of six siblings. After studying at Gopalganj Public School and Kolkata Islamia College, he graduated from Dhaka University. 
His political talent began to manifest itself from a young age. In 1940, he joined the Nikhil Bharat Muslim Students Federation, a student body of the Nikhil Bharat Muslim League. He left this radical organizations and joined the liberal and progressive organizations Bengal Muslim League in 1943. 
Sheikh Mujib played a very important role as a political leader during the 
language movement.
The fifties were the time of his political rise. Gradually he became a skilled political leader with foresight and wisdom. Meanwhile, Sheikh Mujib left the Muslim League and formed the Awami Muslim League along with Hossain Suhrawardy and Maulana Bhasani.
After the death of Hossain Suhrawardy, Sheikh Mujib was elected as the president of the Awami Muslim League. He was a staunch critic of Ayub Khan’s theory of fundamental democracy. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman raised the historic 6-point demand at the national conference of the opposition parties held in Lahore in 1966. These six points were the outline of autonomy for East Pakistan.
On March 7, 1971, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman called for independence in a historic speech at the Race Course Maidan. Bangabandhu announced to the public at the race course, “This struggle is the struggle for our liberation, this struggle is the struggle for freedom”.
In this speech, the father of the nation, Bangabandhu called the Bengali nation for continuous liberation and declared, “When I have given blood, I will give more blood.” I will release the people of this country inshallah. … Everyone built a fort from house to house. He must face the enemy with whatever he has”.
Bangabandhu’s call made the entire Bengal uproar.
Then came March 25, 1971. In the darkness of the night, the Pakistani soldiers pounced on innocent unarmed Bengalis like vultures; Starting with Operation Searchlight, the worst murder in history.
After nine long months of bloody fighting, victory finally came at the cost of 30 lakh Bengalis. On December 16, the Suhrawardy Udyan from where Bangabandhu called for the freedom struggle, the Pakistani army surrendered to the Bangladesh-India alliance. A new country named Bangladesh was born on the world map.
Sheikh Mujib and his family members were killed by a group of misguided army officers at midnight on August 15, 1975.
This heinous killing brought an irreparable loss to the life of the newly independent nation, creating a political vacuum, and disrupting the course of democratic development.
