Early life

Hasina was the daughter of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the principal orchestrator of Bangladesh’s separation from Pakistan in 1971. In 1968 she married M.A. Wazed Miah, an eminent Bengali scientist. While at the University of Dhaka in the late 1960s, she was active in politics and served as her father’s political liaison during his Pakistani government’s imprisonment. Hasina and other family members were also detained briefly in 1971 for their participation in an uprising during the war of liberation that ultimately led to Bangladesh’s independence.

On August 15, 1975, Hasina’s father (who had just a few months earlier become president of Bangladesh), mother, and three brothers were assassinated in their home by several military officers. Hasina, who was out of the country when the killings occurred, subsequently spent six years in exile. During that time, she was elected to the Awami League’s leadership, which had been founded by her father and had since become the largest political organization in Bangladesh.

Some Lesser Known Facts About Sheikh Hasina

Sheikh Hasina’s father ‘Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’ was the first President of Bangladesh   (1971).

In many interviews, she has said that she had grown up living in fear due to her father’s political works.

Hasina was not in Bangladesh when her father’s assassination took place on 15 August 1975 (her mother and three brothers were also executed). She and her sister escaped getting assassinated as they were in West Germany at that time. She was not even allowed to return to the country.

She inherited politics from her family. In her college days, she went on to win the vice-presidential elections of her College’s Student Union by beating Motiya Chowdhury, who later joined her national political party, Awami League. She was also associated with the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), an Awami League student wing.

Since Bangladesh’s political affairs were volatile in 1971  (Bangladesh separated from Pakistan), she had to leave the country for a few years.

alternating leadership

In 1991—in the first free general election to be held in Bangladesh in 16 years—Hasina failed to obtain a majority in the parliament. Her governing power passed to her opponent Khaleda Zia, the rival Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP). Hasina and her followers accused the BNP of dishonesty during the election, and the Awami League, along with other opposition parties, boycotted the parliament. This act of defiant nonparticipation sparked violent demonstrations and plunged the country into a state of political turmoil. Although the BNP government denied all allegations of vote fraud, Khaleda succumbed to demands that she relinquish her office to a nonparty caretaker government that would oversee a new election. Hasina was elected prime minister in June 1996.
