In his long yet thoughtful deliberation Dr. Husain said Bangabandhu was optimistic, selfless, active and a motivated leader who dreamt of an independent Bangladesh immediately after the creation of Pakistan and planted his dream in millions of Bangladeshis. His speech on 7th March was the turning point when Bangabandhu from a visionary political leader turned himself into a charismatic leader of the nation. From a so-called “bottomless basket” he started reconstruction of a war-ravaged country to an economically stable developing nation.
Education was one of the highest priorities of Bangabandhu as Dr. Chaudhury said and to make our Bangladesh ‘Bangabandhu’s Sonar Bangla’ the strengthening of education system is a must. Dr. Monsur conducted the interesting question answer session which revealed different aspects of Bangabandhu beyond the topic of the webinar.
