Tazuddin Ahmed not properly evaluated:  Shimin Hussain Rimi

In an informal discussion session at Canberra, Mrs. Shimin Hussain Rimi, a researcher and the daughter of the first Prime Minister of Bangladesh late Tazuddin Ahmed, appealed to expatriates living in Australia to come forward to the development of the nations with the spirit of liberation war. While recalling the memories of the liberation war, she told some heart touching story of liberation war, Tazuddin Ahmed and Bangobandhu Sheik Mujibur Rahman. She said, “ Tazudding did not compromise on independence under heavy pressure from big powers and some of his party colleagues.”

In reply to a question from the audience she told that Tazuddin Ahmed was not properly evaluated by the then AL govt. She added, “My father had all through deep love for Bangladesh and Bangobandhu. He led the independence war in absence of Bangobandhu. ”

“Mujib-uncle never tried to know how Tazuddin Ahmed led the liberation war and what happened around him during the war periods,” she said while responding to a questions.

“Resignation of the Tazuddin Ahmed from the cabinet was mainly due to intra party conspiracy by power-hungry leaders of the then AL and the verdict of the jail killing was heavily influenced by the then BNP Govt,” she said while responding to a question regarding the assassination and resignation of Tazuddin Ahmed.
