None can erase Bangabandhu’s name from history
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said repeated attempts were made to remove the name of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman from history and thus the nation was deprived of knowing the real history since 1975.
"But it is not possible now as the new generation is very much aware of the country's true history," she said.
The premier made this remark while addressing the foundation stone laying ceremony of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Trust Library at Dhanmodi-32 in the capital.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her younger sister Sheikh Rehana, the two daughters of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, jointly laid the foundation stone of the library.
Prime Minister's Deputy Press Secretary KM Shakhawat Moon briefed the media about it.
Hasina said the library of Bangabandhu Memorial Trust would help the new generation know about the true history of Bangabandhu and the country.
She said the anti-liberation forces had stopped the trial of the killers of the Father of the Nation by enacting an indemnity ordinance after 1975.
The Awami League government has freed the nation from the stigma through the trial of the killers by repealing the indemnity ordinance after assuming power, she added.
Bangabandhu's grandson Radwan Mujib Siddiq was also present on the occasion.
