To inspire the students with the ideals of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, bKash has further distributed 2,000 copies of the graphic novel ‘Mujib’ to 50 schools in Rangpur division.

As part of the initiative of distributing 20,000 copies of graphic novel ‘Mujib’ to 500 schools across the country marking Bangabandhu’s birth centenary and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence, earlier bKash distributed this graphic novel through Bishwo Shahitto Kendro in different schools of Dhaka, Rajshahi, Barishal, Mymensingh, Sylhet and Khulna divisions.

In continuation of this program, bKash distributed the graphic novel in Rangpur in the month of mourning on Sunday. Md. Ibrahim Khan, Additional Divisional Commissioner (Revenue) and Md.

Once the next editions of the graphic novel are published, bKash will further expand this program to more schools along with the existing ones.

The graphic novel 'Mujib' depicts the experiences of Bangabandhu's childhood, adolescence, and social and political activities in a format suitable for both children and adolescents with a vibrant combination of dialogues, stories, and illustrations.
