BSS, Dhaka :
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday expressed her optimism that the people of Bangladesh would follow the path of history of the War of Liberation to build a prosperous nation as dreamt by the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
"People of Bangladesh now have the opportunity to know the country's real history and they would build a prosperous nation based on the spirit of the Liberation War," she said.
She said, "A lie cannot suppress the truth for all times. History of Bangladesh cannot be written without Bangabandhu as he's the major part of the Bangalee's glorious history."
Sheikh Hasina said this while unveiling the cover of a book on 'Secret Documents of Intelligence Branch (IB) on Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman' at Gonobhaban here on Friday afternoon.
It's the first volume of a series of 14 books containing about 40,000 documents and important information of the chronological history of the struggle of Bangalees for independence including the Language Movement. The first volume contains the documents of 1948 to 1950.
Sheikh Hasina said the documents would help know the long struggle of Bangabandhu for Bangladesh's independence, his protest against Pakistani's exploitation and for the cause of protecting the rights of the people.
Hakkani Prakashani published the book edited by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina with the support of the Jatir Janak Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Trust.
Professor Emeritus Rafiqul Islam presided over the function while Director General of Bangla Academy Shamsuzzaman Khan  
was present as main discussant. Inspector General of Bangladesh Police Mohammad Jabed Patwary spoke on the occasion how the documents of IB were retrieved from the storeroom of Special Branch (SB) of Bangladesh Police by a 22-member team.
Member Secretary of the Bangabandhu Memorial Trust Sheikh Hafizur Rahman and proprietor of Hakkani Publisher Golam Mostafa and curator of Bangabandhu Museum Nazrul Islam Khan also spoke on the occasion.
Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Choudury, Chief Election Commissioner K M Nurul Huda, cabinet members, judges of the Supreme Court and Chiefs of three services and diplomats were present.
Younger daughter of Bangabandhu Sheikh Rehana and Prime Minister's family members, leaders of different political parties and professional bodies, writers, poets and litterateurs joined the programme.
The prime minister said Bangabandhu was always vocal against the intimidation of Pakistan on Bangalees. So, the reports of IB were mostly against Bangabandhu, she added.
Terming the documents as invaluable treasures of Bangabandhu's political life, the prime minister said adding these records would allow people to know every activities of Bangabandhu during the Pakistani regime.
