Gonoshasthaya Kendra (GK) founder and trustee board member Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury has criticized a book written by an Indian author tainting the image of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Dr Zafrullah, also a public health activist, came down hard on the book at a press statement on Saturday.

The book, titled "Bangalir Muktijuddher Ontorale Sheikh Mujib" (Bangladesh Liberation War: Sheikh Mujib behind the scene), by Dr Kalidas Baidya, has tarnished all the reputation of Bangabandhu and is continuing to smear over the Mujib Year, he said. 

The government declared the period from March 17, 2020, to March 26, 2021, as Mujib Year and chalked out year-long programs to mark and celebrate Bangabandhu's birth centenary.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the authorities concerned decided to rearrange the programs later.

In the statement, Dr Zafrullah also said that Kalidas Baidya's book, published back in 2005, was currently available in the market and on the internet, including Facebook. "I am strongly against this book's availability to the public."

He hoped that the government would give an explanation of the subject matter of the book and that the quarters of intellectual and civil society would give their opinion on it.

He also urged the lawmakers to discuss its topic in the parliament and adopt a resolution condemning the book.
