Speakers at a seminar on Sunday said people can learn many things of politics from the life of great leader Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as he sacrificed his whole life for the people of Bangladesh.

It is high time for taking a fresh vow to materialize the dream of Bangabandhu to build a “Sonar Bangla”, the speakers said while speaking at a ceremony titled ‘Bangalir Bangabandhu’ held at Bangla Academy in the capital on Sunday evening.

Bangla Academy organised the programme on the occasion of 43th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

National Prof Anisuzzman presided over the programme while poet Kamal Chowdhury addressed as key note speaker, SM Mohsin read out some lines from ‘Karagarer Rojnamcha’, the second memoir by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman while Bangla Academy acting director general Mohammad Anwar Hossain gave welcome address.

Kamal Chowdhury said “Bangabandhu had become a single symbol in the field of struggle to establish the Bangali nation state and it is a greatest achievement of Bangabandhu.  

He said Bangabandhu was arrested in 1948 during language movement. Bangabandhu was arrested for 18 times and he was in jail for 12-year out of his 24-year political life. The Pakistani government tried to kill him involving with the Agartala conspiracy case but none can stop him.

Terming Bangabandhu as the architect of the nation, Prof Anisuzzman said Bangladesh got independence in an uneven war under the leadership of the Bangabandhu.

He also said “It is not possible to erase his contribution to the history of Bangladesh.” 

The speakers also called for grooming up the future generation with the ideals of the great leader so that they could turn themselves into worthy citizens of the country.
