Sheikh Russell wanted to join the army with the spirit of patriotism. In those 10 years, the compassion and service mentality of the child Russell towards the country and the nation was revealed which was unimaginable.

Hills Minister Bir Bahadur Ushaisingh MP said these things in the speech of the chief guest at the discussion meeting and doa mahfil organized on the occasion of Sheikh Russell Day-2022 in the meeting room of the Ministry of Chittagong Hill Tracts Affairs at the Bangladesh Secretariat today.

The program was conducted by Nusrat Jahan, private secretary of the ministry's secretary.

In the speech of the chief guest, the Minister of Hills Bir Bahadur also said that Sheikh Russell is a cherished treasure of every family. If Sheikh Russell were alive today, he would have held an important role in national life. He married those who accepted defeat in the 1971 War of Liberation - they killed the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu on August 15, 1975 to avenge that defeat. Even Bangabandhu's little child, Sheikh Russell, did not join the hands of the assassins. He said, we strongly condemn and hate those killers. The minister expressed anger at the murderers who killed Sheikh Russell and said that the murderers should be brought under the law and exemplary punishment should be implemented for the sin they have taken by killing Sheikh Russell.
