Secret Documents of Intelligence Branch on Father of the Nation, Bangladesh: Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, is a 14-volume set of declassified documents edited by Sheikh Hasina, Honorable Prime Minister of Bangladesh. These are based on the files maintained by the Intelligence Branch (IB) of Pakistan on Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who emerged as a popular leader of the country and became ‘Bangabandhu’ (Friend of Bangladesh). For his struggle and contribution for the independence of Bengali population, he has been honored as the ‘Father of the Nation’.
The volumes provide records for period 1948 to 1971 and chronologically elucidate the trajectory of the various movements and political struggles that lead to the formation of an independent nation called People's Republic of Bangladesh. These include the Bengali Language Movement that catalyzed the assertion of Bengali national identity in the region and became a forerunner to Bengali nationalist movements. Post joining Awami League, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman led the struggle for independence, first through massive populist and civil disobedience movements, such as the Six Point Movement and 1971 Non-Cooperation Movement, and then during the Bangladesh Liberation War.
These are the first ever declassified documents released by the Government of Bangladesh and will serve as an invaluable historical resource in understanding the liberation of Bangladesh.
