Tajuddin Ahmed: Our history maker

TAJUDDIN Ahmed was a man of history. He understood the nuances of history. He was able to analyse history in all the forensic details that such analyses called for. Of greater importance than all this preoccupation with history on his part was his own role in the making of history. Between 17 April...

He never helped us after Aug 15

Denouncing the inactive role of the then foreign minister Dr Kamal Hossain in protecting Bangabandhu's two daughters after his assassination in 1975, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said neither she nor her sister got any help from him during their difficult days in the erstwhile West Germany. “When the Father of the Nation was...

Waging war against Bangabandhu

NOT many days ago, Sadek Hossain Khoka loftily informed the country that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's desire in 1971 was to be prime minister of Pakistan. If you choose to remind yourself, there are hordes of anti-Mujib elements in this country who will keep speaking of Bangabandhu's 'surrender' to the Pakistan army on the night of 25-26 March 1971. You are, therefore, not really surprised at the dissembling such men do in their parochial interest. The problem with Khoka,...

JS not place for making personal attack: Rafiqul

BNP standing committee member Rafiqul Islam Mia today criticised ministers and lawmakers for launching a blistering attack on Tarique Rahman for his recent comments on Bangabandhu. “Parliament is not the place for making personal attack or assassin character of any individual as the House is the place for discussing national issues,” Rafiqul said at a discussion at the Jatiya Press Club. "But after being elected illegally, the ruling party lawmakers have engaged in assassinating character of BNP leaders using abusive words."   Mahmudur Rahman Mukti Parishad, a platform formed for demanding release of Mahmudur, acting editor...

Mujib 'illegal' PM in 1972

In yet another demonstration of his creative imagination, BNP Senior Vice-chairman Tarique Rahman has claimed that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman became prime minister "illegally" in 1972. Tarique's latest discovery comes less than two weeks after he made the startling remark that his father Ziaur Rahman was the first president of Bangladesh. Quoting the declaration of independence, he said Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was to remain president and Syed Nazrul Islam vice-president until a constitution was adopted. "Sheikh Mujibur Rahman returned to the country...

Mujib, Bhutto . . . and lost times

A visit to the Foreign Affairs Training Academy, once President's House in the Pakistani era and then Ganobhavan in the first two years of Bangabandhu's government, is occasion for a rekindling of memories. On the sprawling lawn, away from the public eye, is the spot where Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto conversed briefly, before going back into the building, on March 22, 1971. As a political crisis gathered in intensity all across Pakistan, the Awami League leader...
