Bangladesh Observes Mujibnagar Day

Bangladesh observed Mujibnagar Day on 17th April. On the Occasion Bangladeshi PM Sheikh Hasina paid tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum, in Dhanmondi, Dhaka.

Mujibnagar Day

Mujibnagar Day is observed on 17th April because on this day senior leaders of Awami League assembled at Baidyanathtala—a mango orchard that was later named as Mujibnagar—in Meherpur district on April 17, to form the provisional government of independent Bangladesh.

The provincial government was formed in the absence of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, since he was arrested and flown to Pakistan after Pakistan’s military cracked down on the Bangalis on the night of March 25, 1971.

Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, famously known as Bangabandhu was declared the first president of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, while Vice-president Syed Nazrul Islam became the acting president in the absence of Bangabandhu.

On the occasion Bangladesh paid tribute to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Syed Nazrul Islam and the first prime minister, Tajuddin Ahmad, the first Cabinet Ministers Khandoker Moshtaque Ahmed, M Mansur Ali and AHM Quamaruzzaman.
