'Jabbarer Boli Khela’: A legacy of anti-British movement
At the beginning of 20th century, Abdul Jabbar Saudagar, a merchant from Chattogram, introduced a wrestling competition. His intention was to cultivate a sport that would prepare the youth to fight against British rule.
A kind of self-defence without weapons, this traditional wrestling of Bangladesh is particularly popular in the Chattogram area and is known as "Jabbarer Boli Khela".
