About the Book

This is the story of a dynasty founded by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, a Max Weberian Charismatic leader but unfortunately not a statesman who established a one-party rule, which led to a rebellion and his predictable death. Mujib died of his self-inflicted wound called BAKSAL Dictatorship. Mujib is not frozen in time; his daughter, Sheikh Hasina (the “digital dictator”), and her Awami cadres (followers) continue Mujib’s brutal BAKSAL tradition. On the parliament floor, Mujib boasted about his government’s extrajudicial killing and exclaimed, “Sheraj Shikder, where are you now?” These and other remarks by Mujib show his problems with self-discipline. Pinaki Bhattacharya, a researcher on Bangladesh politics, says, “Mujib was a great trickster.”
