Also popularly known in Bangladesh and West Bengal as Bangabandhu and Sheikh Mujib, was a Bengali politician and the founding leader of Bangladesh.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
Yes, but there is a difference. You see, I am a very poor sheikh.
Rahman quotes
The people of East Pakistan will owe it to the million who have died in the cyclone to make the supreme sacrifice of another million lives, if need be, so that we can live as a free people.
Rahman
There shall be no transaction between East and West Pakistan. All communications, telegraph and telephone, will be confined within Bangladesh. The people of this land are facing elimination.If need be, we will bring everything to a total standstill. Collect your salaries on time. If the salaries are held up, if a single bullet is fired upon us henceforth, if the murder of my people does not cease, I call upon you to turn every home into a fortress against their onslaught. Use whatever you can put your hands on to confront this enemy. Every last road must be blocked.




Rahman Sheikh Mujibur quotes
The appearence of Sheikh Mujib was the biggest event in the national history of Bangladesh. His burial did not take place through his death. More pragmatic, efficient, capable and dyanmic political personalities than Sheikh Mujibur Rahman might have emerged or may emerge, but it will be very difficult to find someone who has contributed more to the independence movement of Bangladesh and the shaping of its national identity.
Rahman Sheikh Mujibur
My greatest strength is the love for my people, my greatest weakness is that I love them too much.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman quotes
This time the struggle is for our freedom, this time the struggle is for our independence!
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
I have not seen the Himalayas. But I have seen Sheikh Mujib. In personality and in courage, this man is the Himalayas. I have thus had the experience of witnessing the Himalayas.
Rahman Sheikh Mujibur quotes
As we have already shed blood, we are ready to shed more blood!
Rahman
I have given you independence, now go and preserve it.
Rahman Sheikh Mujibur
If we had remained in Pakistan, it would be a strong country. Again, if India had not been divided in 1947, it would be an even stronger country. But, then, Mr. President, in life do we always get what we desire?
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
I am happy with my Bangladesh.




Sheikh Mujibur Rahman quotes
Anyone who wishes to stay in Bangladesh will have to talk to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
A man of vitality and vehemence, Mujib became the political Gandhi of the Bengalis, symbolizing their hopes and voicing their grievances. Not even Pakistan's founder, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, drew the million-strong throngs that Mujib has attracted in Dacca. Nor, for that matter, has any subcontinent politician since Gandhi's day spent so much time behind bars for his political beliefs.
Rahman quotes
This may be my last message. From today Bangladesh is independent. I call upon the people of Bangladesh wherever you are and with whatever you have, to resist the occupation army. Our fight will go on till the last soldier of the Pakistan Occupation Army is expelled from the soil of independent Bangladesh. Final victory is ours. Joy Bangla!
Rahman Sheikh Mujibur
Sir, you will see that they want to place the word ‘East Pakistan’ instead of ‘East Bengal’. We have demanded so many times that you should use Bengal instead of Pakistan. The world Bengal has a history, has a tradition of its own. You can change it only after the people have been consulted. If you want to change it, then we have to go back to Bengal and see whether Bengalis will accept it.
Rahman Sheikh Mujibur quotes
In the thousand year history of Bengal, Sheikh Mujib is her only leader who has, in terms of blood, race, language, culture and birth, been a full blooded Bengali. His physical stature was immense. His voice was redolent of thunder. His charisma worked magic on people. The courage and charm that flowed from him made him a unique superman in these times.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
In a sense, Sheikh Mujib is a greater leader than George Washington, Mahatma Gandhi and De Valera.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman quotes
As long as Padma, Meghna, Gouri, Jamuna flows on, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, your accomplishment will also live on.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
As we have already learned how to sacrifice our own lives, now no one can stop us!
Rahman Sheikh Mujibur
I had said, Mr. Yahya Khan, you are the President of this country. Come to Dhaka, come and see how our poor Bengali people have been mown down by your bullets, how the laps of our mothers and sisters have been robbed and left empty and bereft, how my helpless people have been slaughtered. Come, I said, come and see for yourself and then be the judge and decide. That is what I told him.
