State Minister for Religion. Faridul Haque Khan said, in order to be a patriot and a worthy citizen, everyone must know the correct history of Bangladesh. If you want to know Bangladesh, you have to know Bangabandhu. Bangabandhu and Bangladesh are an integral part.
On Saturday (January 2) at the Islampur High School ground in Jamalpur, on the occasion of the centenary celebrations, Bangladesh Awami League, Islampur Upazila Branch organized two books titled ‘Unfinished Autobiography’ and ‘Image of Bangabandhu Bangladesh’ among teachers and students.
The state minister said if we want to present Bangabandhu’s ideals to the next generation, we must first know about Bangabandhu’s life and deeds, his self-sacrifice for the country, his morality and honesty, his deep love for the people. To that end, Bangabandhu’s own ‘unfinished autobiography’ and former governor of Bangladesh Bank, Prof. Dr. Atiur Rahman’s ‘Image of Bangabandhu Bangladesh’ will be especially helpful in getting to know Bangabandhu.
The state minister further said that in order to get to know Bangabandhu better on the birth centenary of Bangabandhu, these books should be distributed among people of all classes and professions including teachers and students. Especially with the students, regular reading cycles and competitions should be organized to read these books. Through this, the next generation will be able to properly contribute to the journey of building a better Bangladesh announced by the Prime Minister in 2041 and the golden Bengal of Bangabandhu’s dream will be established.
