Bangabandhu Sheik Mujibur Rahman was the planner of our nation and the country by all complexity of the period. Indeed, what we now call Bangladesh was never independent in the most genuine feeling of the term before 1971. It was Mujib and just Mujib who gave the country a genuine touch of opportunity. It was truly a trek into the long method for the opportunity from full-scale mistreatment through self-sufficiency and home run in which he gave the dynamic lead. He was the courageouswarrior of the Language Movement of 1952, the pioneer of the democratic movement of 1962, the designer of the Six-point Development of 1966, the life-power of the Mass Movement of 1969, the fortunate victor of the election of 1970 and, most importantly, the greatest legend of the Liberation War of 1971. He is undisputedly the organizer of independent Bangladesh and, subsequently, the Father of the Country. After nine long months of bloody war, the sun of Bangladesh’s independence rose. After the victory of Bangladesh, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was released from jail on 10 January 1972. On his return to the country, he took over as Prime Minister on 12 January. And devoted himself to the work of building a war-torn country. But the defeated Hyenas could not accept his success. So the conspiracy started again. When the country was moving forward overcoming all obstacles, it became a victim of domestic conspirators and international circles. On 15 August 1975, Bangabandhu and his family were killed by a soldier. Therefore, the Bengali nation observes the National Day of Mourning on 15th August every year.
