Tomorrow is the first day of mourning August

Tomorrow is the first day of mourning in August. In this month of 1975, the Bengalis lost the best son of the millennium, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

On August 21, 2004, an attempt was made to assassinate Awami League President and current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the daughter of the Father of the Nation. Fortunately, he survived the day, but the former president Zillur Rahman’s wife, Awami League women’s affairs secretary Ivy Rahman and 24 others were killed and more than 500 leaders and activists were injured.

On the night of August 15, 1975, the assassins not only killed Bangabandhu, but also Bangabandhu’s wife Bangamata Begum Fazilatunnesa Mujib, Bangabandhu’s children Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal, Shishu Sheikh Russell, and daughter-in-law Sultana Kamal and Rosie Jamal.

Bangabandhu’s brother Sheikh Nasser, brother-in-law Abdur Rob Serniabat, nephew youth leader and journalist Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni, his wife Arju Moni and 16 family members and relatives including Colonel Jamil could not escape from this heinous murder.

After the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu along with his family by some endangered members of the army, the shadow of intense mourning descended on the whole world and the poison of hatred spread.

After the assassination of Bangabandhu, Nobel laureate West German leader Willy Brandt said that after the assassination of Mujib, the Bengalis could no longer be trusted. The Bengalis who can kill Sheikh Mujib can do any heinous act.
