This paper is a reproduction of the inaugural lecture by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Professorial Fellow Dr. Harun-or-Rashid, delivered at the South Asia Institute (SAI), Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies, University of Heidelberg, on January 20, 2022. The lecture marked the revival of aforementioned annual fellowship in the presence of Bangladesh’s Ambassador to Germany, Md. Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan. After a survey of Bangabandhu’s life and political career, Professor Rashid discusses his ideas about ‘Bengaliness’, economics, statehood, and Democracy. He pays particular attention to his controversial introduction of one-party system in Bangladesh in 1975, months before his assassination. Professor Rashid argues that Bangabandhu had to temporarily curtail democratic rights in order to resist extreme pressure from the political Left.
