Sheikh Mujibur Rahman day
Monday March 17 2016
(the date changes according to the year)
*The Aug. 15 holiday was scrapped in 2002 by the government of former Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia, after she won a 2001 election by defeating Mujib\'s daughter Sheikh Hasina, another former prime minister. Mujib was killed with most members of his family in a military coup in 1975, which began years of rule by army generals, including Khaleda\'s husband Ziaur Rahman, who was killed in a 1981 mutiny. Mujib formally gave the directive for a guerrilla war to gain independence from Pakistan in March 1971. He was arrested by the Pakistani army but his followers led the war to achieve independence in December 1971.
