A Bangla translation of an English-language biography of BNP chief Khaleda Zia was handed over to the former prime minister on Saturday (April 6).

Titled “Begum Khaleda Ziar Jibon O Sangram” (Begum Khaleda Zia’s Life and Struggles) the book has been translated into Bangla from English by Professor Dr Mahbub Ullah.

The original English-language book “Begum Khaleda Zia: Her Life, Her Story” was unveiled in November 2018. It was written by senior journalist Mahfuz Ullah as the first biography on the three-time prime minister.

The 700-page book tells about Khaleda Zia’s life from her birth in Dinajpur in 1945 to the last days of the 2007 military-backed interim government. 

It also highlights how the charismatic political leader went on to marry a military officer, and later shortly after her husband Ziaur Rahman’s assassination assumed the huge responsibility of the political party Zia founded.

The book also highlights Khaleda as Bangladesh’s first woman prime minister.
