Sheikh Hasina mentioned Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib ignored her private needs and calls for in some ways to create a scope for Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to devotedly work for the nation. Bangamata had no private demand”.

Certainly, Bangamata remained a key supply of encouragement, power, and braveness for Bangabandhu all through his life and countless hardship

Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy, who was like a mentor to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, in 1946 warned the younger chief to not neglect his spouse as “she was a valuable reward from God”.

Bangamata and Bangabandhu would change into the completely satisfied mother and father of two daughters – Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana – and three sons – Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal, and Sheikh Russel.

The couple began their life collectively as kids and tragically died on the identical day, assassinated with different members of their household on August 15, 1975.

Relating to their early married life, Bangabandhu in “The Unfinished Memoirs” wrote: “Once I bought married, I will need to have been round 13 years outdated. After Renu’s father died, her grandfather referred to as my father and mentioned, ‘You’ll have to marry off your elder son to one in all my granddaughters. It’s because I intend to bequeath all my property to my two granddaughters.’

“Renu’s grandfather was my father’s uncle and I needed to marry her due to my father’s command. Renu herself was three years outdated then; she was raised with my siblings,” he added.

Bangamata remained a key supply of encouragement, power and braveness for Bangabandhu all through his life and countless hardship. She was not solely a witness to the main occasions of Bangabandhu’s life but additionally his closest confidante.

Bangabandhu spent a significant a part of his life behind bars for his political activism. Throughout such difficulties, Fazilatunnesa Mujib took care of the household single-handedly and acted as a bridge between the Awami League and the incarcerated Bangabandhu.

August 8 was the 91st Beginning Anniversary of Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib, spouse of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The theme of this auspicious day is, ‘Bangamata is a fearless companion within the disaster and wrestle’. Born on August 8 in 1930 at Tungipara village in Gopalganj district in Bangladesh, Bangamata was brutally assassinated by the merciless assassins of Father of the Nation on August 15 in 1975.

To each Bangalee in Bangladesh and elsewhere in addition to to pro-democracy forces all over the world, August is the month of mourning as on this month Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was brutally assassinated together with members of his household, together with Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib. To me, as somebody who has witnessed our nice Battle of Independence, the August tragedy is one thing that can proceed to bleed my coronary heart without end. No patriotic Bangalee can settle for the tragic assassination of Bangabandhu and members of his household.

On August 8, I spent hours on the web searching for articles on the delivery anniversary of Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa . To my utter dismay, I didn’t discover any, save these written by me and printed by a number of worldwide newspapers and information shops. This has tremendously shocked me. Awami League has been in energy for greater than a decade now, and it’s actually saddening that such an necessary event will get so little consideration, which makes us query the effectivity, dedication, and integrity of those that are occupying cozy chairs in necessary locations.

Can somebody please tackle my questions?
