None can erase name of Bangabandhu: Shamim 

DHAKA, Aug 12, 2022 (BSS) - Deputy Minister for Water Resources AKM Enamul 
Hoque Shameem today said none could erase the name of Father of the Nation 
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as the great leader and Bangladesh are 
closely related.
"Killers - Mustaque and Ziaur Rahman - thought that it would be easier to 
erase the name of Father of the Nation through the assassination of him on 
August 15, 1975...but ultimately his name was never erased," he said.
 The deputy minister made these remarks while addressing a discussion titled 
'Bangabandhu and Bangladesh' at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) auditorium here.
Recalling the tragic assassination that took place on August 15 in 1975, 
Shameem, former organising secretary of the ruling Awami League, said the 
killers - Khandaker Mushtaque Ahmed and Ziaur Rahman - thought that it would 
be possible to erase the name of the Father of the Nation from the history, 
but they could not do so since Bangabandhu's name is imprinted in the heart 
of the people of Bangladesh. 
Terming Bangabandhu as an inimitable leader in the world, the deputy minister 
said Bangabandhu formed a political party and ultimately made the country 
independent with the party as he wanted emancipation of the Bangalee nation. 
Chaired by DRU president Nazrul Islam Mithu, the discussion was also 
attended, among others, by former National University Vice-Chancellor Dr 
Harun Ar Rashid and former DRU President M Shafiqul Karim. 
DRU General Secretary Nurul Islam Hasib moderated the discussion.
