Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had a special contribution to the Language Movement. A lifelong supporter of the mother language, he dedicated his services to acquiring the due recognition of Bangla language in the initial phase of the Language Movement in 1947 and later on as a lawmaker and as the President. Till his death, he spoke for, and worked towards, the development and advancement of Bangla language, and the right of the Bangla speaking people.
