Not everyone has the ability to lead, just some people have this great ability. This is why in ancient times it was thought that those who could be leaders acquired this power from birth. But later it was seen that the ability to be a leader is not acquired by everyone from birth but there are many people who present themselves as a leader among many through their hard work. That’s when the concept of ‘Leaders are born, not made’ changed and everyone understood that ‘Leaders are made, not born’. If you want to be a leader, you have to look at many aspects.

If there is something to learn not only from one’s own experience, but also from the experience of others, then one has to learn from it. If he is hesitant to learn, he will never be able to develop the quality of leadership. Our great leader and the pride of Bangladesh Mr. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu had exactly the same quality. Our leader Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury

Babu was one such person in lakhs. It is very difficult to find people like him nowadays. He has spent his entire life in the service of the people and the nation. Today I am going to talk about Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu’s what qualities did have that I think everyone needs to know! Today we will discuss all of these, let’s get started.




In order to be a true leader in any field, one must have the quality of honesty. Just like that, a respected person must be honest. And if he is a leader with a few to a few million people under him – then he can’t give a shit about honesty. Even dishonest leaders try to pretend to be honest with their people. But at some point, the mask is removed, and no one looks back. There are hundreds of such examples in the world.

Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu was an honest man. He never deceived his country and nation. He has done as much for his country as he can. He never turned the show off. He never even tried to scam. Because he was so honest, he is still alive  on people’s minds even after death.

People follow a bad person, but no one follows a  dishonest and unprincipled person. No matter where a leader want to lead, or who he want to follow, he must be honest. A leader must think before he speak, because if a leader’s words and deeds do not match, his followers will throw him out.

But Akhtaruzzaman Babu did that thing what he speak once. He was an one-word person. If a leader make a mistake, he admit it to his followers. He Do not try to blame others, or try to make excuses. Its an best virtue of an honest leader which has exist on our great leader Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu. One of the greatest proofs of honesty is being able to admit one’s guilt. People will turn away from a leader if he’s not honest. But Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu have million followers for just his honesty.


Believed In Others


Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu was a very good man. He was good, the people who worked with him were also very good. If you are with a good person, you will definitely learn something good, right? That is why Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu believed in the people around him which is one of the qualities of a great leader. A pacesetter will have his very own ideas and philosophy – it truly is ordinary.

But a leader must learn to trust his staff. If a leader can do everything himself, or if a leader can do all the work himself, he can’t focus on his core work. That is why a leader have to trust the people next to us what Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu did.

A leader must have the ability to choose the right person for each of his tasks . At the same time, a leader need to have the ability to trust them. A leader who cannot trust others must understand that he does not really trust his own judgment. A leader cannot be called a leader without faith in his own judgment. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu was a very intelligent leader. He never cheated on anyone and no one ever cheated on him either. Very easily he relied on others for his picking skills which fall into the qualities of a great leader. 


Brilliant Communication



If a leader wants others to follow him, to work for him voluntarily, then he must have the ability to relate to people and explain his own words to them. No matter where a leader want to lead, he must be good at communicating with others. Should have the braveness to speak openly in the front of humans and the capability to make friends. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu was such a man that thousands of people were waiting to hear a word.

His communication skills were so good that at his beck and call everyone was ready to go to war. Chowdhury Babu had this communication skill long ago. One of the organizers of the great liberation war of 1971 was our brave leader Alhaj Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu. When the non-cooperation movement was going on on the eve of the war of liberation, Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury conducted the activities of the struggle committee from his Jupiter House in Patharghata.

After the declaration of independence by Father of the Nation to Chittagong, it was cyclostyled from Akhtaruzzaman’s Jupiter House. The declaration of independence was sent everywhere from Akhtaruzzaman’s residence to Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra. When the war of liberation started, he flew to Indian. While there, he performed various duties of the expatriate Bangladesh government. He was able to help so much during the great liberation war because of his good communication skills. This nation and country will never forget what he did in the war of liberation


Cool Minded Leader


One key difference between a boss and a leader is that the boss can be serious all the time if he wants to, but a true leader have to be easy. The man who is serious all the time, and the one to whom others are afraid or hesitant to come – is no longer a leader. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu was a very simple-minded and cold-headed leader. He always took the right steps. He did everything with a cold head. When the war was going on, he made the right decision in a cold head without rushing and everything was done properly. Exactly 4 years after independence, millions of tears came to the land of Bengal.

Bangabandhu, the great leader of Bengal, was assassinated in 1975 in his own family. It was hurt everyone. In this, Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu kept in touch with the leaders and workers of the party at the risk of his own life in a cold head and later played a courageous role in the revival and reconstruction of the party. No work in a hurry is good so every work should be done with consideration which was done by Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu. If a big job is missed , if there is a technical problem, or any other big danger comes – a leader will not make the environment worse by threatening at first.

He will try to understand what actually happened, and what the solution might be which was done by Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu. The leader’s behavior will be such that he can smile openly when needed, and be harsh when needed. He must be such that his followers can boldly tell him their thoughts and ideas. Instead of being nervous or scared to come to him, they should feel confident.


Confidence And Courage


No other quality of a person’s courage and self-confidence can draw others so close. Where others see the end of the path or just danger – a leader will see new possibilities and opportunities. Confidence is like a virus. If there is true self-confidence in a leader, it spreads to others. If the impossible seems possible to the leader, his followers begin to believe it too. It often happens that no one dares to move forward, only one person takes the first step. And after his initial success, others began to follow him. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu went a long way in life because of his courage and self-confidence. He achieved the pinnacle of success. Due to his self-confidence he was able to establish many factories and factories. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu turned into a successful businessman and industrialist. In addition to politics before independence, he set up a factory called Royal Industry on Batali Road. In addition to his own factory, he also looked after his elder brother’s factories. He came to the line of business because of this big brother’s business and because of his self-confidence. He later built various organizations with his own hard work and qualifications. Some of the organizations he founded are –

Asif Steel Mill, Javed Steel Mill, Asif Synthetic, Pan Mango Vegetable, Afroza Oil Mill, Bengal Synthetic Products etc. The one who takes this first step is actually the leader. And to take the first step requires confidence and the courage to step on the path of uncertainty. Those who can do it, others just accept them as leaders.

Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu loved the country, the nation and politics from his youth. As a result, he was elected as a member of Dakshin Zila Student League in 1958 while he was studying in Madhyamik. He joined Awami League in 1967. From then on, the political career of “Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu” started permanently.

Besides, Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu has done many more things in his life which will never be forgotten. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a leader like him. I am proud to have had the vision of such a leader. According to the commentator on his ideals –

I watched him closely, mingled. I’ve emerge as a associate of happiness and sorrow.

I saw in him a soft heart, a generous heart of love. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu changed into a pioneer in building a non-communal Bangladesh inside the spirit of the struggle of liberation by way of growing above greed.he’s one of the uncommon publish-independence politicians who took the helm of the Awami League in difficult times, doing politics at his own expense.”
