Barrister Sheikh Taposh, Mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC), on Friday said that Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani had dedicated his life to nation-building activities in line with the spirit of the 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.
Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani had played a leading role in the freedom movement, 6-point movement and liberation war, said Taposh.
“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,” he added.
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, he concluded.
