Sheikh Hasina: Ideal human beyond Prime Minister

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is applauded for securing unprecedented socioeconomic development, reducing women and child mortality, alleviating poverty and illiteracy and boosting women empowerment.

People may be in the dark about her personal life. As a Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina has to go through a hectic business schedule.

Sheikh Hasina is something beyond the Prime Minister of Bangladesh and President of ruling Awami League. She is a traditional Bengali housewife, a mother and grandmother.

She starts her day early and performs prayers. As per her speech delivered at the Jatiya Sangsad on September 9, she gets up early, offers Fazr prayers and recite from the holy Quran.

“I first look for jainamaj to offer Fazr prayers after getting up (from the sleep). Then I recite the holy Quran. I take a cup of tea or coffee after making it on my own or with the help of the person who wakes up first (from sleep) among my younger sister or my daughter Putul (Saima Wazed Hossain Putul),” she said.

It is important to note that she enjoys fishing, sewing and cooking too.

Two photos recently shared by her Private Sector Industry and Investment Adviser Salman F Rahman on Facebook bear testimony to it. A photo shows that Sheikh Hasina is sewing a cloth.


She is seen in the other photo to be standing on the bank of a lake and catching fish.

"Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is a complete human being. She has successfully transformed the fortune of 170 million Bangladeshis, has given refuge to over a million Rohingya Muslims, but still finds the time to enjoy cooking, fishing and sewing," Salman F Rahman wrote in the caption of the two photos.

Although the instant photos have created a huge buzz on the social media, she came to the center of discussions in the past by cooking food for cricketer Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib had posted such photos on his Facebook page to express his happiness so that other people can know details of the premier.
