The independence of Bangladesh was declared by Sheikh Majibur Rahman. It needed to be pointed out that, Bangladesh did not existed as a nation prior to its independence; rather the nation was the one of the five provinces of Pakistan after the partition of 1947. After partition, the present day Bangladesh got separated from the mainland of Indian nation. However, the particular province which came to be known as Bangladesh after its independence was known as East Bengal, at the time of Partition in 1947. In a later point of time, it was renamed as East Pakistan, according to its location on the eastern side. But Eastern Pakistan was separated from the other four provinces of Pakistan by 1800 kilometers of Indian Territory. Thus the governance of East Pakistan was not as strong as in comparison to the other four provinces of Pakistan. Governing that particular portion became a fundamental aspect of inconvenience and inadequacies followed as a consequence.
