Radwan Mujib Siddiq, the grandson of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and trustee of Centre for Research & Information (CRI), has turned 41 as his birthday falls on May 21.
Radwan, the eldest among three children of Bangabandhu’s younger daughter Sheikh Rehana and academician Shafiq Ahmed Siddique, was born on May 21, 1980.
His sister Tulip Siddiq is a British MP representing London’s Hampstead and Kilburn.
Their father Shafiq had worked at several universities in Bangladesh and abroad.
Followers keep greeting him soon after zero hour as CRI and Young Bangla shared two messages on their verified Facebook pages greeting Radwan.
Radwan is credited with initiating creative and analytic projects – from architecting Mujib graphic novel to co-producing the docufiction Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale to bringing forth Joy Bangla Concert to editing the country’s policy-based magazine WhiteBoard.
The trend he set in motion of presenting history in the form of stories, films, and concerts revived the interest of the young generation in the country’s history.
Mujib Graphic Novel, based on the unfinished memoir of Bangabandhu, is the first of its kind in the country, presenting history to the kids as comics.
