A statement from the publishers said, “The way Bangabandhu determined his future course of action for Bangladesh has been highlighted in detail in this magazine. Today’s policymakers can follow that and set their own goals.”
CRI took the initiative to publish this magazine on the occasion of Bangabandhu’s birthday in March at the beginning of Mujib Borsho, however, it deferred due to the coronavirus pandemic situation.
The CRI says the first issue of the WhiteBoard will “unravel the mystery of many rumors” about the role of the administration during the assassination of Bangabandhu in ‘75. At the same time, Bangabandhu’s wartime leadership, his fiery speech, various sources of his policy formulation will be discussed in the writings of analysts.
In the statement, CRI said, “Today’s youth are seeing various developments. But they do not know the base of this development is. In this magazine, Bangabandhu’s vision of development will become a reality in front of them.”
Syed Mofiz Kamal, co-editor of the magazine, said the magazine would present new ideas for today’s policymakers.
Radwan Mujib Siddiq, economist Rehman Sobhan, analyst-journalist Syed Badrul Ahsan, former foreign minister Abul Hassan Mahmud Ali and Julian Francis, a friend of Bangladesh in 1971, wrote the foreword to the first issue of the WhiteBoard.
Earlier, CRI published a graphic novel ‘Mujib’ about various chapters of Bangabandhu’s life. The story based on young Mujib becoming a leader is depicted there through comic characters.
