Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that her mother could take right decision in right time.
The Prime Minister said “ My mother told to my father before the 7th March Speech that you sepeak wthatever in your mind and all countrymen will accept the speech. Now, Unesco has recognised the historic 7th March Speech of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as part of the world's documentary heritage.”
The premier said this on Wednesday while delivering her speech on 88th birth anniversary of her mother Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib, wife of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“My mother had skill like intelligence. When my father was in jail, my mother collected secret information from Awami League leaders and activists over country situation and informed to my father when she met with him in jail during the Pakistan period,” she said.
“She was very simple, kind and also very talented. She could manage any hard situation in absence of Bangabandhu during Liberation War in 1971,” she said.
Hasina said Bangamata helped the Father of the Nation from behind the scene and Bangabandhu could become the great leader as she was beside him.
About the influence of Bangabandhu's wife in his political life, Hasina said Bangamata helped Bangabandhu in taking various important political decisions.
Bangamata Fazilatunnesa, who played a pivotal role in nation building activities and the struggle for independent Bangladesh staying beside Bangabandhu, was born at Tungipara village of Gopalganj district on this day in 1930.
Bangamata, a pride of the Bangalee nation, was assassinated brutally with Bangabandhu and most of her family members by a disgruntled group of army officers on August 15, 1975.
