Special attachment to India and Gandhi family

Sheikh Hasina has a special attachment to India and especially the Gandhi family. There was a time when the life of Sheikh Hasina and her family was in danger. At that time it was only for a moment Prime Minister Indira Gandhi not only gave him shelter but also saved his life.

Sheikh Haseen has been living in Delhi for six years. From 1974 to 1981, her address was 56 Ring Road, Lajpat Nagar-3, Delhi. After this, she shifted to a house in Pandara Park, Delhi. The place where she lived in Lajpat Nagar at that time is now a commercial complex.

1975 coup in Bangladesh

Sheikh Hasina came to India at the age of 28. At that time, during the coup in Bangladesh, her father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and other members of his family were killed by the army. At the time of the incident, Sheikh Hasina was in Germany with her husband. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, popularly known as Banga Bandhu, and his entire family were killed on the same night in 1975. After this, the government of the then Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi, gave shelter to Sheikh Hasina and her sister Rehana in Delhi. And she stayed in Delhi for six years.
