Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatun Nesa Mujib always stood by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as shadow companion, making his all success easier in student and political life.

“You saw my father’s (Bangabandhu) success from his student life. My father’s life reached the peak of success, and all these successes became possible because of Bangamata, as my mother was always beside my father,” she said.

The premier said this while addressing the distribution function of Bangamata Begum Fazilatun Nesa Mujib Padak-2023 as the chief guest in the city’s Osmani Memorial auditorium organised by the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs.

The award distribution function coincided with the occasion of 93rd birth anniversary of Bangamata Begum Fazilatun Nesa Mujib, the better half of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Sheikh Hasina said Bangamata always assisted Bangabandhu in his entire political life, adding, “Bangamata used to tell Bangabandhu that I don’t mind your politics, but you have to study.”

Stating that when her father sat for his BA exams, there were riots in Kolkata, and her father worked for stopping the riots, she said, “At that time, my mother came to my father to support his education.”

“Bangamata not only took care of her own family but also gave the money whatever came to her for spending in her father’s politics,” Sheikh Hasina said citing the “Unfinished Memoirs” of the Father of the Nation.

Bangabandhu in the Unfinished Memoirs wrote that “apart from Abba-Amma, Renu (Bangamata) always gave me some money”.

“Renu whatever she could do saving; when I used to visit home, and she gave it to me whenever I needed it, she never raised any objection. She didn’t spend at all; she lived in the village house. She kept everything for me,” Bangabandhu wrote in his autobiography.

“In this way, Bangamata stood beside my father and gave him all the support,” the prime minister said.
