Charter to declare Mujib Father of the Nation
Tuesday, 17 August 2010

The constitution will be amended to declare Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Father of the Nation, co-chair of the special committee on constitution review Suranjit Sengupta has said.

"We will amend sections three and four and put 'Father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman' in the constitution," he said in a meeting of the governing Awami League at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre on Monday

"The picture of Mujib will be hung topmost by acts of the constitution. There will be his picture in every public office."

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina, chair of the special committee on constitution review Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury, ministers and Awami League central committee members were also present.

On July 21, the parliament formed a 15-strong "all-party committee" to review the constitution with no representation from the main opposition BNP.

Hasina had earlier announced forming the committee with an aim to amend the constitution in line with the High Court's verdict declaring the Fifth Amendment illegal.
