BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday said a biography of their chairperson Khaleda Zia, now in jail, is being written.

“A biography on her (Khaleda Zia) is being written. We will find many things in it that many people don’t know,” he said.

Fakhrul announced the biography at a discussion session and photo exhibition at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office.

The Nationalist Research Centre arranged the program to mark the 34th anniversary of Khaleda Zia becoming the leader of BNP.

Khaleda Zia entered politics in 1983, becoming the party’s senior vice chairperson two years after the assassination of her husband and BNP founder Ziaur Rahman.

She was elected party chairperson on May 10, 1984.

Khaleda became the prime minister in 1991 and 2001 after her party’s victory in the national elections.

On February 8 last year, the BNP chairperson was sentenced to five years in jail by a lower court. She is currently imprisoned at the Old Dhaka central jail.

Fakhrul said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her party has repeatedly been trying to undermine Ziaur Rahman, Khaleda Zia and their family, even though they have made immense contributions to the country and politics.

He added that the government’s move to defame Khaleda and her family will not be fruitful as people know their history.

The BNP leader narrated their chairperson’s role in the 90s anti-autocracy movement and her contributions to the country’s development, women’s education and empowerment.

He also reiterated demands that the government immediately release the BNP chairperson from jail.
