History of Bangladesh

It's our great irony how the fundamentalist and war criminal collaborator Jamat-Shibir depicts the history of Bangladesh. Chattra Shibir, the student wing of Jamate Islami, recruits young children for Islamic movement. In most of chaotic political clashes these youngsters die when Jamat Shibir use their death for political gains. I don't think no other political parties in Bangladesh recruits youngsters as what Shibir does. It is a war crime in the guise of Islamic movement. In their web page, they teach our children about the glorious war of independence as a homicidal war. It does not even mention the name of Pakistan who denied the rights of Bangladeshis and who systematically massacred 3 million people over nine months.

Please read this excerpt from Shibir's webpage:


The powerful position of student politics is a unique quality in the field of political practices in the subcontinent. Especially, in Bangladesh, the student organizations hold a historic and revolutionary importance. It is very natural that there are variations in principles and ideologies, vision of the action and work policies between the political parties. These parties have been developed under different principles as well as student organizations are embodied with different parties following the natural differences.

Bangladesh is bearing the student organizations since the Pakistan period. Some other institutes are also developed after the liberation war. Bangladesh Islami Chhatro Shibir is an illuminated name, established in the independent Bangladesh, free from biased sycophancy. It is an independent edification center. Starting their vocation from the central jam-e-masjid of Dhaka University during February 6, 1977, this organization has compiled a glorious history after exceeding a successive 30 years. Bangladesh Islami Chhatro Shibir has established an imperishable honour in the heart of crore of young men and among the general people as a constructive, fast rising democratic institute, as an educational academy - sole and distinctive, and as a workshop to generate human beings.

The history of Bangladesh Islami Chhatro Shibir, during the last 30 years, can be considered from different point of views. It can be evaluated under the socio-economical, political and cultural circumstances of a developing country as Bangladesh. Again, the evaluation can be made in accordance with the fact that ours is the fourth largest country in the world, inhabited by Muslims. The history of past three decades of its origination, surely deserves a sensible, unbiased and precise consideration.

The Inevitable Realities During The Revelation of Shibir

As no historic incident takes place without a backdrop, such no organization generates without demands. The establishment of Bangladesh Islami Chhatro Shibir was an inevitable demand of the time. The entire socio-economical, religious, political and cultural milieu of Bangladesh intensified the need of the establishment of Shibir.

A. Post-independent Bangladesh
The war of independence in Bangladesh ended on December 16, 1971. The people - longing for freedom, won victory after a nine month long homicidal war. But regrettably enough, even with the achievement of a free country, a geographical boundary, a national flag - we failed to win true independence.

India, the neighbouring country who lend a helping hand during the liberation war, immediately started asserting dominance over us. Our precious resources trespassed through the border. M. a. Zalil, one of the sector commanders during the war, became the first political prisoner as he took a stand against these issues. Within a very short period, economical disaster, instability in politics and vacancy in culture occupied the country. The freedom of the nation soon transformed into subjugation due to the utter anarchy....."
