Re: [mukto-mona] বিবিসির সিরাজুর রহমান আর নেই - BBC বাংলা

Sirajur Rahman might have resorted to tall talks at the fag end of his life, but his forceful disclosure that Sheikh Mujibur Rahman mistranslated 3 lack of war dead to 3 million had been testified by the person who gave him that figure in the first place. Abdur Razzaque was Mujib's most trusted lieutenant and from him Mujib got this figure (which was itself wildly exaggerated) before going to the foreign press briefing. So it seems Sirajur Rahman got this story right.

বিবিসি বাংলা বিভাগের সাবেক উপ-প্রধান সাংবাদিক সিরাজুর রহমান লন্ডনের একটি হাসপাতালে মারা গেছেন। তার বয়স হয়েছিল ৮১ বছর। তিনি দীর্ঘদিন যাবত ফুসফুসের রোগে ভুগছিলেন।

I used to know him well when I lived in London and did occasional voice work for BBC Bangla. He used to be a bombast even in those days but certainly not the pathological liar he turned out to be late in life. His tall story and allegations of Sheikh Mujib's mistranslation of 3-lakh to '3 million' dead in 1971 War has been proven a complete lie by persons who were present on the occasion of Mujib's arrival in London from Pakistani jail, or David Frost's interview of Mujib.
