August Issue

This year marks the 47th anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s death. The Father of the Nation, who founded Bangladesh, was assassinated less than four years after the nation’s founding, along with every family member except for his two daughters, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana. The assailants did not spare even 10-year-old Russell and the newlywed spouses of Sheikh Kamal and Sheikh Jamal.
The killing horrified the whole world, destroyed our morale, and uprooted our self-confidence from its very foundations. Since many of them were liberation fighters, the tragedy was made even more excruciating by what their fellow Bengalis did what the Pakistanis could or would not dare do. Things happened after our freedom that did not occur in colonised Bangladesh. The person who brought us together by giving us identity in this world and the strength to resist the vicious, murderous Pakistani army was now dead at the hands of a small group of ambitious, foolish, and arrogant members of our armed forces motivated by hatred.

The assassins’ main goal, the complete dissolution of the newly formed state, has been most fiercely defeated by Bangladesh’s economic prosperity, partly attributable to Sheikh Hasina’s decisive leadership during the past ten years by putting the nation in the world ranking position.

Another part of Bangabandhu’s legacy is his humanism, care for the underprivileged, and support for free expression and fundamental rights. The moment has arrived for us to give these issues more attention.

The family of the Cinebuzz Times will grieve Bangabandhu’s death alongside the rest of the country.

August issue editorial
The assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman occurred 47 years ago this year. Except for his two daughters, due to the grace of Almighty Allah, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana, the Father of the Nation, who founded Bangladesh, was slayed less than four years after the country’s creation. The attackers did not spare even 10-year-old Russell and Sheikh Kamal and Sheikh Jamal’s newlywed brides.
The heinousness of the slaughter outraged the whole world, wrecked our morale, and shook our self-confidence to its very core. Many were liberation warriors; therefore, what their fellow Bangladeshis did that the Pakistanis either could not or would not dare to do made the tragedy agonising. Following our liberation, events occurred.
The man who gave us all a sense of purpose in life and the fortitude to stand up to the brutal, homicidal Pakistani army was now dead at the hands of a small band of ambitious, naive, and arrogant members of our armed forces driven by hatred.
The economic prosperity of Bangladesh, which is partially owed to Sheikh Hasina’s strong leadership over the past ten years in elevating the country to the top of the global rankings, has decisively thwarted the murderers’ principal objective鈥攖he complete collapse of the newly constituted state.
His humanism, concern for the impoverished, and support for free speech and fundamental rights are also a part of Bangabandhu’s legacy. The time has come for us to focus more on these areas.
The family of the Cinebuzz Times will grieve Bangabandhu’s death alongside the rest of the country.
