Under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Bangladesh emerged as an independent and sovereign country in 1971 through a glorious victory in a ninemonth‟s war of liberation. Before that Bangladesh was a province of Pakistan and was called „East Pakistan‟. After the fall of Nawab Sirajuddowla in the Battle of Plassey on 23 June 1757, this wealthy part of the Indian Subcontinent was ruled by the British from 1757 to 1947. In 1947, the British colonial rule ended, and the Indian Subcontinent was partioned into two independent nations–India and Pakistan. Profound disparities in governance between East and West Pakistan led to the craving for independence among the East Pakistanis. The unique Language Movement of 1952 and a series of mass upsurge at various times during the 1960s and early 1970s led to the War of Liberation.
