Sheikh Mujib is not just a name, it is a history. That history has created an immortal epic of breaking the chain of a thousand years. In his political life he has been imprisoned for about five thousand days. But the Bengali did not retreat in the movement for independence. Sheikh Mujib means the existence of the Bengali nation. Sheikh Mujib means Bangladesh.
