Sheikh Mujibur Rahman (Bengali: শেখ মুজিবুর রহমান ; 17 March 1920 – 15 August 1975), often shortened to Sheikh Mujib or Mujib, more commonly known as Bangabandhu, is the name of Bangladesh. He was a statesman, a statesman, and a founding father. He was the first president of Bangladesh and then prime minister of Bangladesh from April 1971 until he was assassinated in August 1975.

Mujib is credited with leading Bangladesh’s successful independence movement from Pakistan. He is honored in Bangladesh by the title Bangabandhu (Bongabandhu, ‘Friend of Bengali’), a title used all over the world. He was a founding member and later leader of the Awami League, which he founded in 1949 as a Pakistani political party based in East Pakistan. Mujib is seen as a fundamental figure in the promotion of political autonomy in East Pakistan, and later as a central figure in the Bangladesh Liberation Movement and the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War. He is therefore regarded as Bangladesh’s ‘Jatir Janak’ or ‘Jatir Pita’ (Jatir Jonok or Jatir Pita, both of which mean ‘Father of the Nation’). His daughter Sheikh Hasina is the current leader of the Awami League and the current prime minister of Bangladesh.
