In the same message, he called Bangabandhu a defender of human rights and freedom. He did not hide his interest in coming to Dhaka to celebrate the historic Mujib Year in his tweet.
Renowned Indian columnist Ram Madhav wrote an excellent column in the open magazine on the 101st birthday of Bangabandhu. He described Bangabandhu as a citizen of the Indian subcontinent. He was literally so. In his short-lived life of 54 years, he was a citizen of both undivided India and then Pakistan and finally Bangladesh, which he had created with his own hands.
Bangabandhu, the father of the nation of Bangladesh, had one thing in common with Pakistan’s father-in-law, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, in one place – they were both fond of pipes, but there were differences in their differences. Where Jinnah, educated in Western education, arbitrarily misused religion in the guise of secularism, Bangabandhu broke up Pakistan based on religion and gave birth to a unique nation-state called Bangladesh with secularism and non-communal consciousness. And to take this friend’s journey to its final destination, Bangabandhu was accompanied by the then Prime Minister of India, Smt. Indira Gandhi, who made her debut in Indian politics, much like the sudden death of Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri in Tashkent. Initially, the idea was that Indira’s political career would be short-lived, mostly transitional. In fact, the opposite happened. By cracking down on the Naxalite movement in West Bengal and the separatists in Mizoram and Nagaland, he reached such a height in politics that he was elected Prime Minister of India by a landslide in the 1971 general elections, despite the split in the Congress. Just as the unconditional support of his government saved the lives of millions of Bengali refugees in 1971, so did the rise of independent Bangladesh and the release of Bangabandhu from Pakistani prisons. In a word, Mrs. Gandhi’s role against the reckless Yahya Khan in the unwavering support of the then United States, China and the Middle East was remarkable. Ram Madhav’s article has excellent, clear explanations on these issues.
A report has been published in the Daily Sun on the 18th of this month. Of course, I did not understand the significance of this report in the reality of today’s Bangladesh. The report said. Details of Imran Siddiqui’s recent meeting with Pakistani High Commissioner to Dhaka Imran Siddiqui have been given. Heads of state or government of five neighboring countries are coming to Dhaka to celebrate Mujib’s birth centenary and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh. Pakistan is missing from the list for good reason. In this context, the Pakistani President has summoned his Ambassador to Dhaka. Purpose How to be effectively involved in this celebration of Bangladesh.
Indian High Commissioner to Dhaka Vikram Doraiswamy recently inaugurated a sculpture called ‘Mrityunjayi Mitra’ at Sitakunda in Chittagong. The sculpture is extremely significant. A day after the independence of the country, a large number of freedom fighters and the Indian army lost their lives in a sudden attack by the Pakistanis. The wounded and the dead were removed from the battlefield on the same stretcher. This ‘Mrityunjayi Mitra’ is the symbol of the birth of Bangladesh in the current of Bengali and Indian blood.
Visiting a gallery in Dhaka recently, Pakistan’s Ambassador to Dhaka Imran Siddiqui remarked that one of his missions in Bangladesh is to deepen the fraternal relations between Bangladesh and Pakistan. In his previous work, in a Western city, he saw the love between the Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities, and he dreamed of implementing it in this country as well.
The Awami League and the BNP, the two main political forces in Bangladesh, would be a big mistake if anyone thinks of them as political parties. Bangabandhu wrote in his prison diary that he wanted to build the Awami League as an ‘institution’. The reality is the same. The Awami League and the BNP are in fact two ‘schools of thought’ – two opposing ideological platforms. The Awami League, formed by Bangabandhu, the bearer and bearer of progressive politics and secularism in this country, on the other hand, is the platform of those ‘Banglastanis’ who did not vote for Awami League in 1970, and three lakh martyrs and three lakh Biranganas whose responsibility is no less than that of Pakistanis.
The BJP government led by Narendra Modi won a landslide victory in the national elections for the first time in India. Their idea was that eventually their ‘School of Thought’ was going to be established in India. Prime Minister Modi’s tweet on Bangabandhu’s birthday shows how careless their calculations were that day. There are more examples like this. So the challenge is no less. The wave that erupted during the Indian Prime Minister’s visit to Dhaka also hit the Rashtrapati Bhavan in Islamabad. And I went to the discussion whether it is the cause of bleeding in the heart of ‘Banglastani’ in the country or not.
The blood ties between Bangladesh and India, which were formed through independence, fell on deaf ears after August 15, 1975. Today it has reached that height of 1971 again. Today’s relationship between the two countries is benefiting from the brotherhood of Bangladesh and India
Ngan. The two countries are running together, holding hands. However, there is no shortage of people being dragged back and forth in both countries, as well as around the house. The first foreign visit of the Indian Prime Minister to Bangladesh was to pay homage to the world friend on the birth centenary of Bangabandhu. It is through this that Bangabandhu symbolizes the unity and brotherhood of the two countries. The Bangladesh-India alliance will move forward ignoring all obstacles inside and outside, this is the expectation on the eve of the upcoming visit of the Indian Prime Minister.
