Bangladesh Parliament Speaker Dr. Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury MP said, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the world-renowned short-lived great man, the greatest Bengali of all time, the friend of Bengal, the Father of the Bengali Nation, has passed the constitution of 1972, paving the way for the Bengali nation to introduce itself in the world assembly. The main philosophy of His politics and movement was to put smiles on the faces of sad people. His historic speech on March 7 is recognized by UNESCO. The worst and worst assassination in the history of the world was the assassination of Bangabandhu. The trial of the murder was also closed for a long time.
On the occasion of the 46th Martyrdom Anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and National Mourning Day 2021, The Speaker said this while virtually joining the discussion meeting, prayers and munajat program organized by the Secretariat of Parliament on 23 August. At this time a minute of silence was observed in memory of the martyrs on 15 August 1975. Special prayers and munajat were conducted by Imam Qari Abu Raihan of the Parliament Secretariat Mosque for the souls of the martyrs.
The Speaker said that Bangabandhu had nothing to seek or get in His personal life, He had fought for the establishment of the rights of Bengalis all His life, for the economic and political liberation of the people of the country. While studying at Dhaka University, He had to lose His scholarship by declaring solidarity with the fourth class employees’ movement. He is a dreamer of an independent state for the exploited and deprived, for justice, against injustice. He has accelerated the movement and struggle through the political process by involving the common people.
Dr. Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury said the nation is celebrating the birth centenary of Bangabandhu and The Golden Jubilee of Independence, the main objective of which is to spread the ideals, philosophy and consciousness of the Father of the Nation among the younger generation. On the occasion of Mujib Year, Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina announced various programs across the country. The Bangladesh Jatiya Sangsad has implemented many other activities including preservation of 128 audio speeches of Bangabandhu in the Parliament Library, special sessions of Mujib Year, creation of special website on the occasion of Mujib Year.
Chief Whip Noor-E-Alam Chowdhury MP said various initiatives have been taken on the occasion of Mujib Year to present the philosophy of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to the next generation through the National Assembly. A Bangabandhu Archive has been set up in Parliament to inform the next generation about Bangabandhu’s career. Through this, the next generation of MPs and everyone will be able to know about the ideals of Bangabandhu.
Whip Atiqur Rahman MP said, our Independent Bangladesh achieved through the great war of liberation under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The assassination of him and his family on 15 August 1975 was in fact an attempt to destroy the Bengali nationalism.
Whip Iqbalur Rahim MP said, “If The Leader was not born, there would be no independent Bangladesh, we could not be MPs, ministers, there would be no bank-insurance-corporation, He is Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, The Father of the Greatest Bengali Nation of all time.” The assassination of Bangabandhu on 15 August 1975 is a disgraceful chapter for the nation. The purpose of killing Him and His family was to plunge the nation into darkness and re-establish Pakistan.
