Life Sketch of 
Mr. Md. Abdul Hamid
Hon’ble President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh

Mr. Md. Abdul Hamid was born on 1 January, 1944 in Kamalpur of Mithamoin Upazila under Kishoregonj district. His father’s name is Late Hazi Md. Tayeb Uddin and mother’s name is Late Tomiza Khatun.
Mr. Md. Abdul Hamid passed his Matriculation from Nikli G.C. High School and both I.A and B.A from Gurudayal College of Kishoregonj. He obtained Bachelor of Law degree from Central Law College under Dhaka University. Afterwards, he started his profession as a Lawyer.
Mr. Md. Abdul Hamid joined Chhatra League in 1959 and thereby his political career began. While studying in the college, he took leading part in anti-Ayub Movement in 1961. He was imprisoned by the then Pakistan Government in 1962 for his active participation in the student movement and opposing Hamoodur Rahman Education Commission Report. In 1962-63, he was elected General Secretary of Student Union in Gurudayal College of Kishoregonj and in 1965-66 the Vice-President of the same student union. Mr Hamid was the Founder President of Chhatra League of Kishoregonj Sub-division Unit in 1964 and also elected the Vice-President of Chhatra League of Mymensingh District Unit in 1966-67. He was again imprisoned in 1968 for leading student movement. Towards the end of 1969, he joined Awami League.
In 1971, on being instructed by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, he started the movement in Kishoregonj amid tumultuous protest against Pakistani regime to create public opinion in favour of independence. In the wake of movement, he hoisted the flag of independent Bangladesh inscribed with the map in a huge student gathering at Rothkhala field in Kishoregonj on March17, 1971 in which thousands of students and people participated. On receiving the historic proclamation of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu for independence through a telegraphic message in the morning of 26 March in 1971, he instantly joined the Liberation War. With the cooperation of Bangalee Army officers in the early part of April 1971, Mr. Hamid procured approximately tk. 11 Crore and 78 lac from Kishoregonj, Bhairab and Bazitpur branches of National Bank of Pakistan and deposited the whole amount safely in the National Bank of Pakistan at its Brahmanbaria Branch considering that as a safe place of custody at that time for using it for the War of Liberation.
Thereafter, he went to Agartola, India to take part directly in the War of Liberation. At that time, most of the Members of Parliament of greater Chittagong, Noakhali and Comilla had been staying there. Mr. Hamid discussed various strategies of Liberation War with them. Side by side, he exchanged views with the local public representatives and high government officials in Agartola. Later, towards the end of April, he again came back to Bangladesh to further organize people and went back to India. Taking several associates with him, he reached Balat via Tekarhat, Gumaghat, Panchara and Moilam of Meghalaya. He set a Youth Reception Camp in Balat for those who came from Bangladesh to participate in the Liberation War. He was the Chairman of that camp.
