Bangladesh and Awami League (AL) is invariable and also an inseparable part of Bangalee nation. History of Awami League means the story of struggle and glory of the Bangalees.
It's the torchbearer of glorious history and heritage of all democratic movements of this soil.
The country achieved independence under the leadership of this oldest and biggest political party.
Awami League is not only the country's oldest and biggest political party, rather it is the pioneer of democratic and non-communal spirit of this soil.
From the very beginning, Awami League has been leading the sociopolitical trend of the country amid different struggles and movements in the seven decades.
After the Liberation War, the party's leader Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Father of the Nation, began to build Bangladesh as a non-communal country.
In line with her father's ideology, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is heading the country towards massive development.
On June 23, 1949, from a meeting of the supporters of Hussein Shaheed Suhrawardy at the Rose Garden of KM Das Lane, Old Dhaka, a new political party named Awami Muslim League was formed.
Coming out from Muslim League, progressive leaders and workers formed Awami Muslim League. It was the first opposition party in the then East Bengal (later renamed East Pakistan).
Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani became the President, Shamsul Haq of Tangail as General Secretary while Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was made as Joint Secretary. In a process of secularization, the word "Muslim" was later dropped from the name of the party.
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman came to the leadership of Awami League amid 1966 Council. Later, he became the unparallel leader of Bangalee nation and architect of Independent Bangladesh and Father of the Nation.
