State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid on Wednesday said the government is forming a commission to unearth conspirators behind the assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with most of his family members in a coup on August 15 in 1975.

“The commission is being formed to unearth those who were involved with the heinous killing ... And also to unmask the culprits who were behind the plot,” he said, reports the Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha.

The state minister said this while distributing prize and certificates among the best reader students participated in the function marking the 47th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and National Mourning Day-2022 at Jatiya Grantha Kendra. 

The alleged culprits of the Bangabandhu killing would be unearthed through the commission, he said, adding: "Even the conspirators who were involved with this brutal killing also would be unmasked."

Referring to the supreme sacrifice made by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Khalid said Bangabandhu has been able to set the most glorious example before the nation through sacrificing his life as he gave us [the Bangalee nation] an independent and sovereign state through his lifelong struggle. "His [Bangabandhu's] history has suppressed all the histories of the Indian sub-continent," he told the function.

Chaired by Cultural Affairs Secretary and Chairman of the Jatiya Grantha Kendra M Abul Mansoor, the function was also attended, among others, by Noted Writer and Journalist Saraf Ahmed, Cultural Personality Golam Kuddus and Private Library Representative Shah Newaz.

Terming Bangabandhu as a great leader of the Bangalee nation, M Abul Mansoor said: "When we would know the lifestyle and sacrifice made by the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family members and follow it in our own life that would be the real honor and respect to the great leader as well."
