Bangladesh Chhatra League


Bangladesh Chhatra League is a major political student organization in Bangladesh. It was formed shortly after the emergence of East Bengal in the partition of India . It is recognized as a fraternal organization of Bangladesh Awami League .


Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman founded the Bangladesh Chhatra League on 4 January 1948 at the Assembly Hall of Fazlul Haque Hall of Dhaka University . At the time of its establishment it was called East Pakistan Muslim Chhatra League .  Since its inception, Bangladesh Chhatra League has played a leading role in various rights movements in Bangladesh at different times . Notable among them are the state language movement , right to education, establishment of Bengali autonomy, mass uprising, independence and freedom movement. Naimuddin Ahmed acted as the founding convener and Dabirul Islam was later nominated as its organizational president. Khaleq Newaz Khan was the founding general secretary of Chhatra League.

After the establishment of Bangladesh Chhatra League on 4 January 1948, the first mother tongue fought for Bengal. Bangladesh Chhatra League had a role in the language movement of 1952 as a continuation of the movement. The then East Pakistan Chhatra League played an important role in the 1954 United Front elections. Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was the youngest minister in the 1954 United Front elections, with Chhatra League being Bangabandhu's vanguard. Leaders and activists of the then East Pakistan Chhatra League played a leading role in the 1962 education movement.

Sheikh Mujibur Rahman demanded 6 points of 1966, which was the certificate of liberation of the Bengali nation. In this context, the independence movement of Bangladesh gained momentum. Bangabandhu was inspired by the movement of the leaders and workers of Chhatra League at that time.

The then East Pakistan Chhatra League played a historic role in the historic mass uprising of 1969 . In 1969, the students of Bengal formed a massive mass movement against Pakistan for the independence of Bangladesh, which took the form of a mass uprising. The then BCL leader Tofail Ahmed on behalf of the student community of Bengal gave the title of 'Bangabandhu' to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, which accelerated the pace of the great war of independence in 1971.

The role of the then Chhatra League in the 1970 elections was significant. At that time Chhatra League was working as the vanguard of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Chhatra League played a direct and indirect role in electing Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the undisputed leader of the Bengali nation, by building a fierce mass movement against the misrule of Pakistan all over Bangladesh.

Thousands of BCL leaders and activists were martyred in the great liberation war of 1971. In the historic speech of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on March 7, Chhatra Sangram Parishad was formed all over Bangladesh under the leadership of Chhatra League. The then BCL leaders including Noor Alam Siddiqui and Tofail Ahmed formed the Chhatra Sangram Parishad. Under the leadership of Chhatra League, Chhatra Sangram Parishad was formed in every district, upazila, union and ward level. The leaders of the then Student Struggle Council directly participated in the War of Independence.

Chhatra League was instrumental in inspiring and involving the nation in the war of independence. Many leaders and activists of Chhatra League were martyred in the war. After the war of independence in 1971, East Pakistan Muslim Chhatra League was replaced by Bangladesh Chhatra League.

Chhatra League played a leading role in the democratic movement. The role of Bangladesh Chhatra League in the anti-authoritarian movement is commendable. Universities play a leading role in the anti-authoritarian movement. In the continuation of which the dictatorial government fell and the democratic government emerged.

During 1/11, Bangladesh Chhatra League formed a mass movement demanding the release of all students and teachers including Sheikh Hasina. Following which, all the political prisoners were released in the democratic process and the democratic government started with an election in 2008.

The newly elected president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon and general secretary Golam Rabbani led the organization at the national conference of Chhatra League on July 31, 2016. Due to the controversial activities of the two central leaders, on September 14, 2019, Al Nahyan Khan Joy was removed from the post of acting president and Lekhak Bhattacharya took over as the acting general secretary. At the next council they were made regular presidents and general secretaries.


It is the first student organization in undivided Pakistan. This organization started its journey under the name of East Pakistan Muslim Chhatra League . After the independence of Bangladesh, its name was Bangladesh Chhatra League. The Awami Muslim League was formed on 23 June 1949 . Later, to avoid communal controversy in the party, the word Muslim was removed from the name of the party in 1955 and renamed as East Pakistan Awami League . At the same time, the name of Chhatra League was changed to 'East Pakistan Chhatra League' to protect it from communal allegations.

Mujib's forces were formed under the leadership of Chhatra League in the war of independence . People took part in the liberation war under different names including Mukti Bahini and Mujib Bahini. After independence, the name of the party also changed. The name of Chhatra League is Bangladesh Chhatra League .
