Our today’s report about the biography of a bright star of the Police Commander in Chief (IGP) in the history of Bangladesh.
Sheikh Zaman, New York, USA.
The Golden Age in History of BD Police:
When the Pakistani army forces attacked the sleeping people of Dhaka on March 25, 1971, the first resistance was created by the police force. Operation Search Light” which first hit Rajarbagh police lines, Dhaka. Supreme Sacrifice in Liberation War was made by the Police Force.
Today, 47 years after independence, where is the history of the police force glory?
What’s going on Now:
Currently near about 1 lakh 94 thousand 938 police personnel are working in Bangladesh Police. Police have been headlined in different times. There are many complaints including misbehaviour, misuse of legal power, falsely implicated in false cases, bribery, extrajudicial killings and failure to proper investigate, etc.
After independence, police again used as a PETAO (পেটোয়া) force. They were never found as friends of the people. The way the British used the police, in some cases the rulers are using police in the same way.
Though the police symbolizes the trust and trust of the people, the confidence of the police has decreased. Almost every day a person is being killed or is being lost.
A commander in chief emerged to tear the bad reputation of the police force from 2007 to 2010:
Did we know the name of the first Police Commander in Chief which emerged as a bright star to bring back glory of 1971? He is the first person to build the transparent and modern police of Bangladesh. It is not possible to change everything in the 3 years.
Yet he was the first successful Commander in Chief (Inspector General of Police). His contributions to the police department will be history.
Who is this Great man, with a smile, straightforward nature?
We are talking about Mr. Nur Mohammad, who was a Bangladeshi diplomat and a former police officer who served as the Inspector General of Police of Bangladesh Police during 29 January 2007 – 31 August 2010.
In August 2011, he was appointed as the ambassador of Bangladesh to Morocco.

From a Boss to be a Leader:
From a public servant Mr. Nur Mohammad is now honorable MP Kishoreganj-2 (Katiadi-Pakundia). Hope he will be lead again the Bangladesh Police Department as a honorable Police Minister (Home Minister). We believe as a Great man Mr. Nur always remember, Theodore Roosevelt quotes, “People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader works in the open, and the boss in covert. The leader leads, and the boss drives.”
