Introduction[change | change source]

Syed Nazrul Islam is the most important man in the history of Bangladesh, under whose direct leadership the helpless Bangladesh government in 1971 freed Bangladesh from the hands of Pakistan by conducting a nine-month armed liberation war . This event gave Bengali ethnicity a chance to make a proud resurgence before the world.
