DHAKA, DEC 4, 2020 (BSS)- Mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Barrister Sheikh Taposh today said that Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani had dedicated his life to nation building activities in line with the spirit of liberation war.
He made the remarks while exchanging views with reporters after paying homage to Shaheed Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni at Banani graveyard this morning, said a press release.
The DSCC mayor said Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani had played a leading role in the freedom movement, 6-point movement and liberation war.
“He formed the Mujib Bahini under the direction of the Father of the Nation and served as its Eastern Commander. After the war of liberation, he formed the Bangladesh Awami Jubo League at the instructions of the Father of the Nation as he considered the need to take the young society forward and engage them in nation building,”
Taposh said, after overcoming many ups and downs, Juba League will now play a leading role in building a merit-based society under the leadership of Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash, a worthy son of Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani. The dream of Shaheed Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani will be fulfilled only when the youth can reach that stage, he added.
Taposh said, “We will always feel the void of Shaheed Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni. He himself joined the war of liberation, organized and commanded the Mujib force. At the same time, he used his pen to build the nation after independence.”
