15th Of August  

Posted by Rezwan in ,

Today is a black day for Bangladesh. 34 years ago on this day the father of the nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was assassinated along with his family members. On 7th of March 1971 he gave a fiery speech which united the nation towards the liberation of Bangladesh, which they achieved after a nine month long war with Pakistan.

Here is a background of why and by whom he was assassinated.

Interestingly another political drama was played today in Bangladesh. Khaleda Zia, chairperson of the main opposition BNP and former prime minister claims that 15th august is her birthday. Today she celebrated her 65th birthday with a 65 pound cake.

She was earlier sent a legal notice demanding a clarification on her party celebrating her birthday that coincides with the National Mourning Day.

The base of this confusion in everybody's mind is that because:

  • According to the education board her date of Birth is 5th of September 1946
  • When she first took oath as a prime minister her date of birth was 19th of August 1947
  • According to her marriage certificate with Ziaur Rahman the date of birth is 9th of August 1944
  • According to her press secretary later she is claiming her date of birth as 15th of August 1946
Her party BNP dismissed the allegations that she has deliberately chosen 15th of August as her birthday to undermine Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's death.
"The government is doing whatever it wishes by the power of its majority."

"Now, they think nobody can have a birthday on August 15; that no one was born on this day. Such autocracy is not acceptable."
Here are the relevant documents for your own judgment:

The Education board certificate:
Marriage certificate:
The Voter registration form of 2000:
These shows why people of Bangladesh cannot put their trust on their leaders and most of the valuable times of politicians and bureaucrats are wasted to pursue these arguments of treachery and trivial matters.

This is a very typical idiology. Revenge to the father of the nation as Bongobondhu re-establish the family bondage with Zia after the war (1971) ends when Khaleda returns from Pakistan and Ziaur rahman denied to take her back to his family. She would have been in a pros quarter now if Bongobondhu would have faild. She should be utmost grateful to the father of the nation.

I think Khaleda Zia is a bionic woman and full of heavy brain and body. This is why she was delivered to this unfortunate part of the earth in four stages part by part in four different dates. God Help Khaleda!

Shame Khaleda. It is out of imagine that one person has four birthdays! Actually what is her birthday? She is tring to reduce her age. Funy! Like Khaleda, the formar priminister of Bangladesh. People of Bangladesh replied such type of blody activities of Khaleda in last general election. She should be more people oriented instead of lead a luxurious life.
