Zia on Zia’s Assassination


Ziauddin M Choudhury’s book, Assassination of Ziaur Rahman and the Afermath is a chronology of events surrounding the killing of General Ziaur Rahman , the then President of Bangladesh .

The book also contains a brief summary on the rise of Zia to power. The Author Ziauddin M Choudhury was the Deputy Commissioner of Chittagong during Zia’s assassination during a failed army coup in May 1981.

The author in this book has pointed out how gradually Ziaur Rahman became ambitious to gain unchallenged power by not only removing Justice Sayem from the office of the President of the Republic but also by forming a new political party which contained many members who had opposed the War of Liberation in Bangladesh.

Ziaur Rahman in the haste to launch political parties, ignored that a section of army were unhappy about the political system into which General Zia entangled himself .

The author, from his vantage point , doubts if one would if the officers charged and executed were the only people involved in the assassination , if General Manzoor actually was the leader of the coup which failed and ended in a mess.
