The Founder Of Bangladesh

The founder of Bangladesh is Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Bangladesh achieved independence because of his good leadership. He had been active in politics since his early days. He was imprisoned in jail for talking about the freedom of people. He raised the 6 points demand. Because of his call, the people of the whole country jumped into the liberation war like the tiger. So the founder of Bangladesh is Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Bangabandhu was in politics for talking about people.

He spoke against oppression. So the Pakistani government has repeatedly thrown him into jail. But he could not restrain himself from raising his voice. Every time just after getting released from jail, he used to jump into the movement again. He united all the people of entire Bengal against the repression. For that, the government of Pakistan becomes afraid. At one stage, the war begins. Later, after nine months of the long war, Bangladesh gained independence.
