Bangabandhu was dreamer of Bengali nation: HT Imam

DHAKA, Prime Minister's Political Advisor HT Imam today said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was a dreamer of Bengali nation.

He (Bangabandhu) not only made the Bengali people aware about their nationhood, but also showed them dream of freedom. It was his big achievement, he said.

HT Imam was addressing a discussion titled 'Bangabandhu and Bangladesh' as the chief guest at the Officers Club in city's Baily road area marking the National Mourning Day.

Bangladesh Administrative Service Association (BASA) organized the discussion with BASA Senior Vice-President and Prime Minister Office's (PMO's) Secretary Sajjadul Hassan in the chair.

HT Imam said no Bangali could have done such thing which Bangabandhu had done. He gave an independent state and built it gradually, he added.

Bangabandhu was really an architect of Bangladesh, PM's political advisor said.
