"Blessed is that Man on whose name :
Flutters independence
Like a flag,
Blessed is that Man on whose name shower
Ovations of respect from the freedom fighters".
(Poet Shamsur Rahman, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"Many celebrated and famous leaders were born in Bangladesh. They suffered immensely for the country. Faced tortures. We respect them all. However it must be accepted that in relation to facing tortures and providing leadership Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib is the creator of most remarkable history.  His sacrifices, courage and personality is unparalleled. Through his political foresights and leadership, he turned the normal political process into revolution and swerve the revolution into liberation war. This is incredible in the history of independence. The revolutionary history of Bangladesh has produced Bangabandhu. And Bangabandhu has created the new revolutionary history, thus today to us he is the Father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman".
(Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury, renowned writer and columnist, Swadhinotha Sangram O Sheikh Mujib, Khondokar Kamrul Huda 1995)
"Rocking the sunny stage of people
the poet enthralled them with his immortal poem:
'Struggle this time is the struggle for our freedom.
Struggle this time is the struggle for independence'.
Since then, the word 'Independence' has been ours".
(Poet Nirmalendu Goon, Bangaleer Shuddaya Nam Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Baby Mawdud, Chardeek 1989.)
"Bangabandhu began the struggle for economic emancipation after he had won the struggle for political freedom. He was thrown into jail eighteen times and passed twelve years of his life in prison. He stood on the docks as an accused in twenty-four cases. Death stared very starkly at him at least twice. If he had not so ordered, nobody else had the power to get the Indian soldiers withdrawn from Bangladesh after the liberation of the country".
(Syed Mohammed Hussain, former Chief Justice, Bangladesh Supreme Court, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"When a violin player in Berlin wanted to know about Bangladesh from me,
I took out a folded ten taka note from my breast pocket
and showed the picture of Sheikh Mujib,
I said, look this is Bangladesh;
I don't know anything more than this about Bangladesh".
(Poet Mohadev Shaha, Bangaleer Shuddaya Nam Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Baby Mawdud, Chardeek 1989.
"Whose voice was it that set the world shaking?
While talking of this Bengal
It was the voice of Mujibur, Mujibur-
Let's all chant 'Joi Bangla', O Brethren all".
(Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra (Independent Bengal Radio Station), Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"Bangabandhu, immeasurable indebtedness lies behind this freedom
Millions of your sons have redeemed this debt
With their strength and freedom
Bangabandhu, the war for this freedom has not ended yet
Your children have to be vigilant guards for centuries
For protection of this freedom, from country to country
Bangabandhu, we salute thee for this freedom
This freedom was bought at a high price we know".
(Asif Shahakar, Urdu speaking poet from Sweden. Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
 "I have not seen the Himalayas. But I have seen Sheikh Mujib. He is the Himalayas in personality and in courage. I have thus had the experience of witnessing the Himalayas".
(Fidel Castro, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman: Father of the Nation, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Trust , 2010)
"The greatest attribute of Mujib's character was the blend of an uncompromising and combative leadership with a soft, sympathetic heart".
(Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian leader, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"With the name of our father
The desires of the oppressed people of the world is intertwined, know-
The downtrodden and beleaguered find inspiration for struggle and revolution.
The greatest human language for protest against the oppressions is Mujibur Rahman".
(Asad Choudhury, Bangaleer Shuddaya Nam Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Baby Mawdud, Chardeek, 1989)
 "Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
Just this one name tied together the Hindu and Mussalman.
The man has shown that men have only identity as men
The beastly acts in religion's name can never be a religious act ever".
(Dakshinaranjan Basu, poet of West Bengal, India. One of his poems on Bangabandhu. Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
 "Tall for  a Bengali ( He stands  5 feet  11 inches ), with a stock of greying hair, a bushy moustache  and alert black eyes, Mujib can attract a crowd of a million people to his rallies and hold them spellbound with great rolling waves of emotional rhetoric. 'Even when you are talking alone with him', says a diplomat, 'he talks like he's addressing 60,000 people.' Eloquent in Urdu, Bengali and English, three languages of Pakistan, Mujib does not pretend to be an original thinker. He is a poet of politics not an engineer, but the Bengalis tend to be more artistic than technical, anyhow and so his style may be just what was needed to unite all the classes and ideologies of the religion".
(Loren Jenkins, 'Poet of politics' Newsweek, 5.4.1971)
"Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is the greatest non-violent Gandhian leader of the present age".
(Jayaprakash Narayan,  Indian politician, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"I believe, the world will stand by you. We've got to stand by you. God will otherwise never forgive us. Joi Bangla (Long live Bangla)".
(David Frost,   British TV journalist, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"Sheikh Mujib is not just the Bangabandhu (Friend of Bangladesh), He is from today also the Viswabandhu (Friend of the World)".
(Ramesh Chandra, The secretary-General of the World Peace Council. , Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"The oppressed people of the world have lost a great leader of theirs in the death of Sheikh Mujib. And I have lost a truly large-hearted friend".
(Fidel Castro, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"The Bengalis cannot be trusted any more after they have killed Mujib. Those who have murdered Mujib can do any despicable Job".
(Willy Brandt, the then Chancellor of Germany, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"They were wearing uniforms,
Boots and helmets of soldiers,
They have spoken to Bangabandhu as well,
They behaved like pure Bengali,
Bengali language.
Cannot deny that they looked like human,
And they were indeed human,
They were the people of Bengal-
I will not hear anything more shocking than this ever".
(Poet Shaheed Qaderi, Bangaleer Shuddaya Nam Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Baby Mawdud, Chardeek, 1989)
 "For the moment Bangladesh's greatest asset remains Bangabandhu himself. Sheikh Mujib's extraordinary dynamism and charisma is still there, may be slightly dented by the sheer intractability of the problems, but still the force that inspires and unites his people. With the dangerous and difficult years ahead, Bangladesh is going to need Mujib's brand of leadership more than ever".
(Michael Burns, ex British MP, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
 "Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is enshrined in the freedom which he won for all the people of Bangladesh, every man, woman and child. He strove to give them not only political freedom, but social and economic freedom, to be enjoyed in their daily lives. His assassination was more than a crime against one man; it was a crime against the whole nation. His name must live in all the history of struggle against imperialism with those of Lenin, Rosa Luxembourg, Gandhi, Nkrumah, Lumumba, Castro, Allende. His hopes for Bangladesh have not been realised because of the conspiracies of those who killed him and their successors. It is for the new generation in Bangladesh to achieve his aim of a nation which is not only politically independent but which applies that independence to give a full human life to all its citizens".
(Lord Fenner Brockway, Member House of Lords and Chairman of 'the Liberation,'9.8.1979, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, , Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"His physical death meant tragedy for his own family, bitter sorrow for his friends, but of course, it was a greater sorrow and a tragedy for Bangladesh that was plunged by his death into great troubles. But troubles are the part of nation's growing up, and there is senses in which it is true to say of Bangabandhu that the blood of martyrs was the seed of the movement that he began. I think he will never die because when Bangladesh raised again through its present troubles, to the full flower of nationhood, his spirit would turn to us and say, if you want my memorial, look around you".
(Sir Thomas William QC, Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
"I have observed a combination of three qualities in you,
Forgiveness, kindness and munificence-
Certainly you were born as the benefactor of the oppressed
And the dispossessed of the world
The oppressors have therefore brutally killed you-".
(Moulana Sheikh Abdul Halim, Arabic Poet, in one of his poems after the killing of Bangabandhu. Prose translated by Poet Nirmalendu Goon. Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
 "They killed our Raja. How could they kill Raja like this?
(An elderly lady, Sonar Para, Sylhet, on the day Bangabandhu was assassinated, late Luthfur Rahman, ex Chair of Bangladesh Youth League (UK))
"Death is not thy last destination, O friend of Bengal,
Thy life is but an inextinguishable flame
That'll burn and radiate light for all times to come".

(Elangbom Nilkanta Singha, Poet of the Indian state of Manipur. Celebrities on Bangabandhu, Muntassir Mamoon, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, 2013)
