The Rise and Fall of Mujib

1 x 48

We follow the footsteps of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as East Pakistan moves from Jinnah's Islamist nationalism of 1947 towards Bengali linguistic and cultural nationalism that led to the creation of Bangladesh.

 

The civil disobedience was responded by the Pakistan Army with war crimes that led to 3 million Bengalis displaced, and thousands of women raped and killed.

 

We investigate the reasons for Mujib's rise and his violent death after the Liberation War in 1975, that until today has Bangladeshis fighting between Islam and secularism.
