The land was donated by the founder himself. It was designed by Bayazid Mahbub Khandaker, an engineer for a firm called Nakshabid in Dhaka. Its construction is expected to be completed in two years.
The museum has a list of 5,065 Razakars in the greater Rangpur district. Documents of their apology, list of members of the peace committee, some dummy rifles used by the freedom fighters in the Roumari battlefield, mortar shells, grenade-goal boxes and other documents thrown by the Pakistani forces in the Bhurungamari battlefield.
