BANGABANDHU SHEIKH MUJIBUR RAHMAN- THE FATHER OF THE NATION
The life of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is the saga of a great leader
turning peoplepower into an armed struggle that liberated a nation and created independent Bangladesh.
The country achieved its independence under the indomitable leadership of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
endearingly known as Bangabandhu or Friend of Bangladesh. The birth of the sovereign state of
Bangladesh in December 1971, after a heroic war of nine months against the Pakistani occupation forces,
was the triumph of his faith in the destiny of his people.
