An Ideal Political Leader
In my opinion, Sher-e-Bangla Abul Kasem Fazlul Huq is an ideal political leader. He is regarded as the father of the renaissance of the Muslims of Bengal. He was a born leader. He developed his leadership qualities from his boyhood. He was a great scholar. He could make the people spell-bound by dint of his knowledge and wisdom. He was a good speaker. when he delivered a lecture in public meetings, all people listened to him with rapt attention. He was an ardent upholder of democracy and a great parliamentarian. The contents of his arguments were invincible. He had a good sense of humor also. A. K. Fazlul Huq was a great patron of education. He was a beloved friend of people. The Bengal Tenancy Act was passed at his initiative. This law rescued poor peasants from the oppression f the Hindu Zemindars. The famous “Lahore Resolution” was drafted and moved by him. He was the first Muslim Mayor of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation. He was Education Minister and Chief Minister of the then Bengal. During Pakistan Period he was sometime Chief Minister and Governor of East Pakistan and Home Minister of Pakistan. But he always led a very simple life. He was very close to the common people. So common masses loved and respected him as their friend, philosopher, and guide. For these qualities and strong principle, he is an ideal leader undoubtedly. Those who are involved in politics should follow Sher-e-Bangla A. K. Fazlul Huq minutely to move in the sphere of political success.
