Dr. Nuran Nabi was a dedicated activist of the Bangladesh Liberation Movement and a valiant freedom fighter in the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971. Based on his heroic contribution to the Bangladesh Liberation War, the Far Eastern Economic Review, in its May 6th, 1972, issue, described Dr. Nabi “as the brain of the Freedom Fighter Forces“. He was awarded a special citation by the commander-in-chief of the Bangladesh Liberation Army. After the war, he finished his master’s at Dhaka University, received his PhD from Kyushu University in Japan, and did his post-doctoral research at New York University.

“Bullets of ’71: A Freedom Fighter’s Story” details Dr. Nuran Nabi’s experience growing up in rural Bangladesh and living through the tumultuous episodes of the Bangladesh liberation movement and the liberation war
The Bangladesh Liberation War was bloody. Three million people were killed, thousands of women were raped, and ten million people were forced to become refugees. However, this story transcends the events of the war. It explores the political backdrop among China, the United States, the Soviet Union, and India. Dr. Nabi effectively illustrates how the selfish decisions of a few world leaders led to millions of crimes perpetrated against humanity. But among all the pages in this book, none are more candid and horrific than those that cover the atrocities committed by the Pakistani military. Although the Bangladesh genocide unfolded during the nine months of the liberation war, Dr. Nabi thoughtfully separates these stories to remind us of why he and his fellow freedom fighters fought.
The most accurate description of what happened in 1971 Bangladesh is found in “Bullets of ’71: A Freedom Fighter’s Story.” It is an engrossing tale that highlights crucial aspects of the global quest for liberty.
