[] Agartala Conspiracy Case and Sheikh Mujibur Rahman

Yeah but Member of Assembly and a Constitutional Lawyer of Sh. Mujib Mr. Khwaja Khairuddin was an uncle of one of my cousins (the wife of Ahmed Raza Chaudhry that was killed by Pakistan Army because all secret Meetings of Sh. Mujib had taken place at her posh Bungalow in Dhonmondi) and we met in his Dhaka Flat in August 1971, he had told me, there was no speck of Evidence that Sh. Mujib could be convicted of Treason in Agartala Case or in March, 1971 riots.
I have no idea what are you now digging out of his grave. Why don't you just shut up stupid ...!
Sh. Mujib was and is Founder of Nation and you can not take that away from him bastard.
